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. I am wallowing with intense pleasure in these petals. I especially enjoyed the editing you did with some of these shots. Great material for your fabric art, dear lady!

    1. Thanks so much, it amazes mw how fun and easy Photoshop makes it. I see a lot of wonderful photographers out there, who are so creative in their editing and are able to just conjure up such strikingdeas. One, who I follow on FB, Bonnie Bruno, is a master, producing artwork rather than just beautiful photos [I’m not saying there is anything wrong with beautiful photography,I love striking images} but she adds another layer of interest. Bonnie McCaffery does some striking images of flowers, very close up and I love what she is doing with her macro lens.I love photrography,evidenced by the multiple photos on my blog. -Barb

      1. In the Photoshoto program there are severaal setting under special effects. One which effects transluceny and and several that effect
        the edges. If you get get the less expensive one it’s under $100, and works great fror us amatures. I was aiming for subtlness in most of them, luded or some with no effect whats so ever for contrast.
