Back in the Studio~In 2020!

HAPPY NEW YEAR’s!

It’s amazing to believe, not only a New Year, but a new Decade has begun! And, with it comes new goals, dreams, and activities to strive for in the Studio…

A big Thank-you to everyone who ordered Art, Prints & Cards during the Holiday season! 🙂 Artists everywhere appreciate being supported in that way!

Sets of Cards…

Currently in the Studio, besides doing Inventory and other administrative activities, January began with me completing the printing of some Art Card orders….

And, enjoying the quiet of the studio to hand-roll the edges of this beautiful Italian Silk Scarf! More about that soon! 🙂

I’m also in the imagining stage of the next Visions of Spain piece…

Planning time to continue work on the Child’s Play piece on the cutting table…

And piecing the background of the Sea Images piece!

So, time to get back to work!! …Huummm, maybe more***** snow****would help!? 🙂

~My Story~

Recently I shared more of my story on Instagram and thought it’d be good to share with all the Followers of this Blog too!

My Story

…As an artist working in textiles, I began my love of fabrics as a young girl in grade school–beginning with sewing an apron in Girl Scouts! ☺ The local fabric shop was a fascinating place for me with all the wonderful colors, different textures to touch, and the endless possibilities of what someone could create from all the different materials! Endless possibilities…!
✂️📏👗👚
Through the years, I sewed my own clothes and later made a traditional sampler quilt. After taking a few classes at shops over the years, I went to Graduate School and studied Apparel Design, taught design classes on the university level, and continued to design original textile creations…

My focus is now Textile Art. I gather design ideas from my life experiences, like from travels… walking in nature and gardens🌿🌷🌻🌼…and studying human development👨‍👩‍👧. I then express those ideas in my wall hangings, or “fabric paintings”! 🎨
Here, I share my works-in-progress, inspirations & ideas I’m gathering, plus new completed Original Art…and Art Prints and Cards.

*I’d love to share more with you about my journey as an Artist…Is there any questions you’d like to ask me about my work &/or creative, design process?

Please ask me in the Comments below! 🙂

The smell,..the taste…the warmth…helps awaken the senses and inspirations!! And, having the cup “match” the color scheme doesn’t hurt either!  🙂
