Description

Porcella was originally a sewer and weaver before she got into quilting. This background helped her to focus on the colors and fabrics more. She is very traditional and consistent in her methods. She claims that her creativity stems from her observation skills that she learned from her nurse's training. She also talks about her books, and her evolution as an artist.
