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.

  1. This quilt looks great! The stitch work turned out really nice. Are these flowers also called Foxglove? I just planted some foxglove a few weeks ago. I love that they are tall and full of flowers.


    1. Barbara,
      Thanks for your kind comments. I can say with certainty that those are not foxglove, they are hollyhocks..I ‘m a fan of the English cottage garden style . LOVE it and planted my whole yard in it. I’ve grown both plants, and they are both tall and vertical, but foxglove is a little shorter, with more tubular shaped flowers. I did a post on Sept 5th with pictures, titled “The last flowers of summer”, the foxgloves shown are mostly white and planted next to the pink roses. I’d give you a link, but can’t get it to work.


  2. Hollyhocks are an old fashioned flower, maybe that’s why we love them…reminder of happy memories. In England you see them planted everwhere, they are so cheerful.


  3. I LOVE it!! Thanks for sharing your steps & pics – I found the whole journey spell-binding!


  4. I love hollyhocks! Reminds me of ‘small kid time’ when we had a lot of them in our yard. I love the blossoms in your quilting also. Beautiful!
