About Myself & My Approach Art has always played a role in my life, in one form or another. My family is filled with many artist's, so my love of art came naturally. By my teens, I had narrowed my focus to painting. I decided I was going to become a serious painter. I joined the Las Vegas Artist's Guild at 15, the youngest member at that time. I've continued to paint throughout my life. On occasion I've sold my work, but I had more important priorities, I was raising my children, part of that time as a single parent. My circumstances have changed, the kids are grown and I have more time for Art. Art is a form of therapy for me. I was introduced to quilting & fell in love. In time I missed the creative freedom painting made possible. Then I discovered mixed media fiber art, I was home. MY APPROACH TO ART It's the creative process that holds the greatest attraction for me. Starting with a tiny seed of an idea; vague and blurred around the edges, I follow where that leads. My approach is an instinctual one. Generally, I do little pre-planning. I make creative decisions, choices, directions to take as they present themselves. This approach can lead to quite a few changes in the direction the quilt takes. The outcome can come as a surprise. I love that element of surprise! Sometimes everything just comes together & I think to myself, "this is one of my better ones". when that happens, I can’t wait to show someone. I feel like a six year old, running home from school, a drawing in hand, excited to show Mom. At those times. I'm smiling like the Cheshire cat. I’ve had work published in several magazines., which is gratifying. But the most gratifying thing is having clients be really happy with their purchased art quilt.

One thought on “SECOND SKIN FABRIC ART EXHIBIT

  1. Brigid,
    I had forgotten about this old post. The date of this event was 2010, you can barely see it on the flyer. That would explain the non functioning links. I’ll see about pulling this old news. BTW they may still be holding this event, I was given the impression it was an annual event. If you Google it, there must be a more current link.
    I appreciate you’re bringing this to my attention. I tend to post it & forget it, not a good idea I suppose. I’m concerned in particular about the slow loading time on my site, that you mentioned. I do have a lot of large photos, which could be effecting my loading time.
    It’s a hard balance to maintain, I’m a visual person and large photos are appealing to me, yet I don’t want that to the effect the loading time. Can you have your cake & eat it too? I guess that old adage would apply here. The answer to that question is still, “no”..
    Thanks again.
    Barb
    I just tryed their link http://newhopeart.org/ and it still worked. In fact they had some pictures of the fashion show associated with the event from that 2010 show.
