I can’t remember a time in my life, when it wasn’t filled with art. I was a painter most of my adult life. When exposed to a new art form, art quilting, it was a perfect fit.
My love of painting painting could be combined with techniques used in quilting, expanding my creative choices. Offering new directions to explore. It was exciting.
The greatest appeal for me in creating art is the creative process. The work takes a direction all it’s own. Following where it leads can be surprising. I love that element of surprise!
When I’m especially pleased with a art quilt I’ve finished, I can’t wait to show someone.
I feel like a 6 year old running home from school with his artwork in hand, he can’t wait to show Mom!
When I’m excited a art I’ve just finished, I’m like that 6 year old. And I’m smiling like the Cheshire cat!
