A-HFI was born in the sign of Scales, thus being gifted with creativity, originality and arts understanding. That is why it should not be suprising that I have been involved in various creative activities since childhood, developing them further as a mother of three. The last thing I tried out was patchwork and I stayed faithful to it until today. I made my first quilt more than 15 years ago, purely by intuition as I had no knowledge of patchwork and quilting techniques at that point in time. Soon I started sewing the classic scrap quilts, which let me play with my creativity.

 Once Art Club CZ was founded in 2008, my quilting future became absolutely clean. Since then, I am focusing on art quilts and modern techniques. Having participated on numerous modern patchwork techniques workshops, reading through many books and even more web pages and visiting multiple exhibitions, the time has come for me to pass some of my knowledge and experience further.

I have been exhibiting multiple collections of the Prague Patchwork meeting. I have participated on numerous exhibitions in the Czech Republic (Fulnek, Prague, Hlinsko) and abroad (Birmingham, St. Marie aux Mines, Tatabanya). I enjoy taking part in challenges and humanitarian projects, making quilts for children from children homes. I am a member of the Prague Patchwork Meeting organizational committee, the Bohemia Patchwork Club, Art Quilt Club and newly founded group Art Quilt Harbour.
