Cher was born in Southern Africa in a time of peace and prosperity, and grew up on a farm enjoying the natural beauty around her. She and her husband lived in Africa for 40years raising 3 children there, before moving to the USA 9 years ago to open a business. They have had ties with the Springfield area for 15 years, and are happily settled on a small acreage just outside town.

Here’s how Cher describes her work:

My love of sewing and a natural designing ability have allowed me to run my own business for many years, and quilting has become a passion over the last 10years. I soon learned I was not a conventional quilter, and branched out into Art Quilts where I could express my creativity!

I am inspired by God’s creation and love the scenery and animals of the world, which are embellished into my quilts. I do my work mostly freehand on my Longarm machine which has allowed me to express my subjects in a unique style of thread painting.

Please enjoy my quilts as I enjoy making them.
