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. 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.
