My web site isΒ set launch the end of the week. I love that word, launch!

I want to have lots of quilts to launch, so I’ve been working

make lots and lotsΒ of quilts. That is easier said than done. Here’s a few, in various stages of work. I hope to be finished soon.

The first one closest to completion a silk painted red egret.

The colors in this silk are just wonderful. Wish I took time to write down my color formulas but no, it’s always a little bit of this and a bit of that, maybe a bit more of this ,,,you can follow my drift.

An experimental one. It’sΒ Β commission and is sounding fun.A Stained glass window. I’ve been experimenting with different mediums to produce the look of old glass with a hint of light behind. I have designed what I’ll use and found a technique that will replicate the look. That.s the quilts so far, I’m off,have beenΒ  siting too long.Ha!

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. Word press Etsy shop-sales Contact: inquiry Personal Links
