Is this a blog about art quilts or photopraphy?

This is a Fiber art blog definitely an art quilting blog.

I think it is clear that I enjoy photography as well.  In fact my photos aid in making my art quilts.Photography is an art form as well.

Art can be passed on through heredity, there were several commercial artists in my family, as well as some very talented amatures. Must be that  left side/ right side brain thing. There it is, hate math, live art, that’s me.

We can agree that one art form can lead to others. So here’s an example of that point.

 Since I have a captive audience, { well I suppose you can leave, but I hope not} I’d like to share  a few photos I took in early spring, of  some local ferns with their new fronds emerging

I have a little announcement/plug to make. As you may well know, I am soon opening my own art web site. Exciting and scary for me.  I plan to keep

my etsy shop open as well, I’ll carry many non art items such as table runners, bed spreads, baby quilts and a section for fine art photography,  high resulation art prints. I hope you will be willing to support my new website, which I’ll give further details soon, as well as my etsy shop

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.
