My name is Megan Patton, or Doe as my family calls me. I am a quilter, painter, art gallery owner, wife, and mother to a dog named Leon.
I graduated from the University of Mississippi with a BFA in Art. After graduating I became a portrait artist and immersed myself into art festivals. In 2011 a friend and I opened Yalo Studio and Gallery. Painting has always been my first love, but my passion for quilting has slowing been making its way to #1.
Actually, I thinks it's already there...
My grandma and great-grandma were both quilters. I did not want the art of quilting to end with them; so I taught myself. It was 2008 when I made my first; it was hand-pieced and hand-quilted. I now machine piece, but only hand-quilt.
My husband and I live in Water Valley, Mississippi. It's a small town located 20 minutes south of Oxford.
