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!
…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?
