About

Lifelong painter becomes a weaver

I have been painting all my life no matter what I did for a living. I started Walkingquail so that people who asked to see my paintings could easily view them in one place. I have sold at open studios, art fairs, to friends, co-op galleries, the gamut. So an ETSY shop was a natural extension of this career.
Walkingquail is my trail name. I am often out on the trails, visiting my animal friends and receiving the blessings of nature. I always come home inspired by color combinations or animal stories I saw out of the corner of my heart.
I also work in my native plant gardens. Here in California we have the most native plants of anywhere on the planet and I believe they are perfect in our yards where they lived wild before we built our houses. No water hogging lawns for me! I am comfortable with the wild.
Over seven years ago I had the opportunity to take a weaving class at Ghost Ranch in Northern New Mexico. I thought I was just doing some cross training but I got completely hooked on weaving. I now spend much of my time weaving, learning to do a better job. Color and texture, does it get any better than that?
I strive to integrate all these parts of my life into one balanced ethic of harmony.
