Once again the weather is the inspiration for a post…This year the weather has just been so dramatic around here!
The days became unusually warm a week or so ago, with signs of Spring barely beginning to appear…Change was in the air!
There was a struggle between Winter and Spring…
And this week Winter won!
But, we are still looking forward to welcoming Spring very soon, along with new happenings and events! My art quilt, “Flamenco Swirl #2” was accepted into the PAQA-South’s juried, art exhibit. If you are in the Raleigh/Cary area of North Carolina, be sure to check out this piece from my studio, along with @ 25 other works from Contemporary Textile Artists!
Change is just not Always a Smooth Transition!

The chilly air, the change in the colors of the sunlight, as well as all the trees’ leaves, signals that summer has ended and autumn has arrived in the mountainsides that surrounds us here.
Summertime had its own pace, with plans all its own….I’m just now getting caught-up, organized and back to a regular routine. But, it gave me time to gather new ideas & experiences..for inspiration and renewal!
My art quilt, A Different Perspective, was exhibited in June at the Sacred Threads 2015 Exhibit inHerndon, VA (outside of Washington D.C.) This exhibit focuses on art quilts of artists “who see their work as a connection to the sacred and/or as an expression of their spiritual journey”.
The art quilts had themes of joy, spirituality, peace/brotherhood, inspiration, grief, or healing. My piece was part of the category of Inspiration.

It was exciting to have this work accepted and shown in this venue. Enjoy! 🙂
Summer is ending quickly around here, with school starting, cooler nights, and changing tree leaves~It’s autumn! Maybe that is why I have been in the mood to makes changes to my website! Hope you like the new look…
Along with updating theArt Galleryin the coming weeks, I am also preparing for another solo exhibit. The Lifeweavingsexhibitis scheduled to be shown from September 12th–26th, Wallace Hall, Virginia Tech, Blacksburg, VA . I am honored to be invited to exhibit and share my work there!
