Completed Kraken

Here’s the finished commissioned quilt.

Stormy sky, when ready to begin quilting , was hard to decide what direction to go with.

Disclaimer:I know that I take a whole lot of pictures of works. Β I just want to mention that this is what happens when you giveΒ  a digital camera and a web site,Β  to a photographyΒ enthusiast… a whole lot of pictures are sure to follow, maybe so many you’re getting Β bored looking.. Kind of like a home movie of someone else’s vacation, “Oh look! Here’s that tree we liked, and here’s where we stopped to use the bathroom on the drive there, oh oh,Β  here’s a good one- the inside of our motel room and then there’s that great motel sign outside”…Sure technology has it’s good points, but then,…there’s the dark side no one wants to mention…

About Myself & My Approach Art has always played a role in my life, in one form or another. 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 was completely out of place, I tried to go unnoticed, a mute fly on the wall, with a big smile pasted on my face. I've continued to paint most of my life. After a move to Oregon years later, I was introduced to quilting and fell in love. 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. There are often many changes and adjustments along the way. The result can often be surprizing. My approach is an instinctual one. Generally, I do little pre-planning. I make creative decisions, choices, directions as they present themselves. This approach can lead to quite a few changes in the direction. I love that element of surprize! Sometimes I have one that I especially like, I can't wait to show someone. At that moment l 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 some of my work published in several magazines. which is exciting. But the most gratifying thing is having clients be really happy with their purchased art quilt. Word press Etsy shop-sales Contact: inquiry Personal Links

      I think I go a little crazy with the picture taking at times, I want to show the whole thing, every square inch ,, “oh here’s this part”…and then on the other side ” over there it looks like this”…
