About

Crafting including sewing, painting and sculpting is a real passion of mine. I could say I am self taught, however I received much training from "Simply Quilts", and "Carol Duvall" on HGTV, on line classes along with my favorite artists like Cindy Waters and Susan Carlson for fiber art. I love the "no rules" approach they teach! Quilting Arts Magazine also has inspried me to press on. The paper mache I do is based on teaching on line from Jonni Good along with so many others who have paved the way for me. I have been painting since I was a child (a very long time!). I also took classes in Stained Glass and Pottery making. My husband and I derive much inspiration and creativity from our 14 Grandchildren - wow do they inspire happy thoughts! My quilts "Hide and Seek" and "In the Woods" along with many others are inspired by them and they are pictured in them.

So many of my themes…

So many of my themes and inspiration is Biblical. Creation itself offers a plethora of inspiring subjects to paint, sew, mold, sculpt and just meditate on. I thank God every day for the blessing of living where there is a pond in our back yard. The wild life it brings and the vast species of birds who also keep the mosquitos from breeding are wonderful. Many of my fiber art works are inspired from that view point. I love Biblical imagery and often am consumed with the subjects making them the focal point of a piece of art - such as "The Midwives", "Jonah", "The Wind", "The Passover", "Old Jerusalem", "in the Garden" and many others.''

I am retired from selling real estate but enjoy donating time to teach crafts to school children.

Since all my work is original there is always only one of each item. I will do special projects upon request. Thank you for visiting my site!
