Many of you know I wear several hats ...
so to speak.
I started my journey as an illustrator.
Then I rediscovered fiber ...
it had always been a presence
in my life. I don't think any
of the women in my family
didn't do some kind of hand work ... always.
Even the men were enlisted to
when a set of six chair seat
cushions was desired
by the matriarch, aka. Gramma.
So, I was taught to basketweave
at a very young age,
sitting still for that long was
not my forte.
At age ten my teacher announced
to my entire class,
'your mother can draw, so I'm sure you can too'.
The assignment was to draw
clouds for a science project.
Hardest thing in the world to make look real,
in my humble opinion.
My journey will always be around my talents.
AND I love that!
I love to draw, I could sit and draw for hours.
Of course, life interrupts.
My drawings are presently centered around
ideas for a new body of work.
Each piece is to be 5" square,
each very abstract,
each as colorful as I want,
each loaded with treasures,
the first abstract in this series.
mixed media fiber art.
This will be floated into a shadow box
and available in August at the
Fine Art at the Magnolia

|Oh how I love bullions,|
floating on these are chipped
real metal thread.
|Couched Japan Gold that |
catches the light beautifully.
|Beginnings of the bead pile. |
That's about four layers of
wool felt appliqued to the center.
|So much fun ...|
|I have drawers full of treasure.|
No idea where these wonderful green beads
came from originally but they're perfect.
|When you finish a piece around |
start playing with
your phone camera.
Love this shot.
