“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 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.
