A student of life, parent of two and educator for over 30 years - I have always celebrated learning. As a teacher, I mastered my subject matter and engaged in communicating the American story provided in assigned text books and resources. While I questioned, I complied with both state and board requirements. It would be years later when I was faced with a racially motivated challenge that I began to seek comfort through the stories and history of my African ancestors. What began with a single discovery about "Pitt Schools" quickly multiplied into a series of unplanned fabric squares that I later constructed into a quilt. The more I knew, the more I wanted to know!
Today, I have over 30 quilts that I have displayed in a variety of venues. It is my hope that my quilted tapestries will serve to inspire others to embark on their personal sojourn of discovery.
