Melinda Bula, from El Dorado Hills, California, has been sewing since she was a young girl. In love with fabric all her life, Melinda knew when she was sixteen years old that she was going to be an artist. After working for fifteen years as a fabric and wallpaper designer, Melinda and her husband started a hand silk-screened wallpaper and fabric design company, Melinda Bula Designs, which sells products nationwide. Melinda’s wallpaper and fabric designs have been featured on the covers of Better Homes and Gardens magazine as well as other notable publications. A move to the Sacramento area in 1996 inspired her involvement in quilting and wearable arts. Melinda has won numerous awards for artistic quilts and wearable arts that use fabric and thread to achieve the look of paintings. She teaches and lectures in the United States and internationally. www.melindabula.com
