About Myself & My Approach To My Art About Myself & My Approach To My Art I can't remember a time in life, that art didn't play a role, in one form or another. But my primary focus as an artist, has been painting. Close to 20 years ago, I was introduced to quilting & quickly became passionate about it. However to create a quilt there are some necessary steps that have to be followed, this obviously restricts some of the creative choices. I began to miss the creative freedom possible with painting. Since there are only so many hours in a day and I had other important things going on in my life, I had to focus my interests. When I discovered mixed media art quilting, it was a great fit. The combination of quilting techniques with painting and other art skills opened new creative directions to explore. I was home! It's the creative process that holds the greatest attraction for me. I love starting with a tiny seed of an idea; vague and blurred around the edges. Then I follow where it leads. My approach is more of an instinctual one. I usually don't do much pre-planning. My creative choices are made as they present themselves, based on my gut feeling. 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 that this is one of my better ones. 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. Personal Links

  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.

    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.
