“Here’s The Finished Quilt”

Now that this art quilt is completed, I’m going to share a few more photos of it, in it’s final form. Many of the elements in this quilt will look familiar, because I’ve been posting photos all along, showing it’s progress as I’ve worked on it.

The photos are repeats of various elements in the quilt, but with each one there has been subtle changes.I thought some of you might want to see it in it’s final form.

I enjoyed working on this art quilt and I enjoyed working with the woman who commissioned it. I liked her idea the moment I saw pictures of this gorgeous tree, a royal poinciana tree. It looked exotic, with so many different elements.

That was her only request, she wanted a poinciana tree featured in it, then she turned me loose to run with it in whatever direction I was inspired to take. In doing a commission you are given an idea or subject that your client wants.To do my best work, I need to find a way to incorperate my client’s idea while finding a direction to follow that I can personally get behind and make it my own. Feeling a sense of excitement in working on any creative effort is the best fuel.

Some are reluctent to take on commissioned work, but I’ve never had anything but positive experiences in doing them, and a great deal of my work is commissioned. I enjoy getting to know the person who will soon own a piece of my work. That’s a nice experience. I’ve met some really nice people, some of which we’ve kept in touch even years later.

The quilt has reached it’s new home in Australia. My client is happy and that means I’m happy.

About Myself & My Approach I come from a family filled with many artists.s 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 totally out of my league, a kid among so many serious adult artists. But to be there, exposed to art in that way was quite an experience. I was enraptured, soaking up. I tried to go unnoticed, just a fly on the wall, mute, a big ole smile plastered on my face. soaking it all up. I tryed to go unnoticed; a mute teenager, eyes wide opened and a huge smile plastered across my face. I’m pretty I was noticed, a mute kid with an enraptured look on my face. I've continued to paint throughout my life. On occasion I've sold my work, but I had more important priorities, one being raising my wonderful children. My circumstances have changed, the kids grown, I had more time and Art was like theorpy for me. I was introduced to the world of quilting & fell in love. I did miss the creative freedom painting afforded. 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. themselves, my appproacj response js an instinctual one. 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 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. I’ve had work published in several magazines., which is gratifingvl. But the most gratifying thing is having clients be really happy with their purchased quilt.
