I have worked in the higher education IT field for over 26 years and I proudly wear the word geek.
My grandmother has sewn and quilted her entire life and she's given me a number of her quilts. One day in 2016 as I was looking at them, it occurred to me that I could try doing this!
I decided to merge these two worlds of IT and sewing to become: The Geek In Stitches.
While I have not made any full sized quilts, I have experimented with a large number of smaller wall hangings and eventually found my way to painted acrylic canvases. My work with pineapples was inspired by 16+ years of visiting Charleston, SC.
I've been steadily adding things to my Etsy shop to help support my addiction to the creation of artwork!
