Contemporary fiber art, original work.

I’m finally getting around to posting this. As you can see I’ve been into bright and bold lately.

Those colors are so good together.
I usedΒ  my flowerΒ sketchesΒ  to draw and paint the flowers. They were appliquedΒ onto the back ground fabric, thread painted, andΒ  finally quilted. With the colors in that background I had to step up the quilting. I used different bold color toΒ matching thatΒ  background.Β I really enjoy quilting and did some really interesting feathers and swirls and dots over the entire art quilt. I like the result .
This is a bright, fun and colorful quilt that wouldΒ  add pizzazz to a modern neutral styled room, as well as a number of other styles. It is just the pop of excitement that brightens where ever you hang it, in your home or office.

It is still for sale at a reasonable price. Contact me for details.

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.
