About Myself & My Approach Art has always played a role in my life, in one form or another. My family is filled with many artist's, so my love of art came naturally. 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've continued to paint throughout my life. On occasion I've sold my work, but I had more important priorities, I was raising my children, part of that time as a single parent. My circumstances have changed, the kids are grown and I have more time for Art. Art is a form of therapy for me. 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. My approach is an instinctual one. Generally, I do little pre-planning. I make creative decisions, choices, directions to take as they present themselves. 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 to myself, "this is one of my better ones". when that happens, 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. I’ve had work published in several magazines., which is gratifying. 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.
