About Lisa

        
     

Lisa has studied with and been influenced by many noted designers and quilters including Linda Taylor, Marcia Stevens, Cathy FranksPatti Hyder, and Ellen Anne Eddy, among others.

Her own unique style has blossomed, and she has become noted for her lovely freehand work, particularly the things of nature - leaves, birds, butterflies, dragonflies, floral wreaths, etc., inspired by the beauty of her surroundings on the beautiful Pacific North-West coast.

Her own work and that of her clients has appeared and won top prizes in shows and exhibitions in the USA and abroad, including: The Houston Quilt Show, Paducah, The Road to California (Blue Ribbon for Excellence in Machine Quilting), the International Machine Quilters Showcase (Second for Themes), the San Diego Quilt Show, and the San Diego County Fair (Several Blue Ribbons), the NorthWest Quilters' Expo (Blue Ribbon), the Newport quilt show (numerous Firsts, Seconds, Thirds, Honorable Mentions and Judge's Choice), and others nation-wide, as well as in Ireland.
