Retreat Leader: Ronnie Ashford
Rogene E. Ashford “Ronnie” from Tulsa, OK, has created “art” since early childhood. At about eight years old, she got into trouble for creating a very large mural in charcoal on the side of the freshly painted stucco garage! She learned to do embroidery at an early age and remembers playing under the quilt frame while her mom, aunties and grandmother stitched and talked. She studied art through high school and college.
Throughout her life, she has tried her hand at many art mediums; two mediums of her art have always been paint and thread. Ronnie is an award-winning quilter and is active in several local quilt guilds. She has a small ministry of refurbishing older sewing machines and places them with gals that would love to have a sewing machine, but cannot afford one.
Ronnie currently works as a mental health therapist and an adjunct professor at Southern Nazarene University, and she enjoys family, friends, art, her chickens, gardening, handwork, music, painting, quilting, reading, walking/running and writing. Her philosophy in life is, “laugh loudly, live fully, love deeply and never ever go backward!’’
