Simone Gautier Bradford is a graphic designer, textile designer, quilter and sewist who lives and creates in Southern California. An early exposure to the arts influenced her desire to create and she went on to earn a B. A. in art, with an emphasis in graphic design. Simone always keeps a pen or pencil nearby, drawing as the urge strikes her. Her notebooks, filled with images of quilts, fabric design ideas and sketches of new sewing projects, are her hidden treasure.
