About Me

My photo

I started this blog on November 23, 2009 just because I wanted to chronicle my artistic endeavors and see "in black and white" how many different directions my artistic brain would go.  I challenged myself to try different mediums and that this blog could be a platform to post my achievements and failures.  I cannot believe it's been six years now!  Over the past 6 years I've learned a few things from writing this blog:
1.  Art is in my blood, I will always be thinking or doing something artistic
2.  About 80% of my work turns out better than the original idea
3.  I am not a fast artist, I have to start on an idea and then let it sit for a while
4.  It's OK that my "artsy" brain sometimes goes in 1,000 different directions at once
With all of this said I now consider myself a mixed media artist because I a lot of my talents cross over into other projects I've already started; It's a great life and I wouldn't change anything about my crazy artistic brain!

I have put my paint brush down and I've cranked up the ol' sewing machine again

Since I have started making these fabric bowls (see previous post) I have reawakened my love of fabric.  And combine that with the next gallery show at Olde Towne Art and I decided to finish one of my quilts that I started years ago.  The new show, which will start April 6th, will be called New Works.  I am almost finished my quilt for that show plus I will be displaying/selling my fabric bowls.  I am almost finished a third bowl which will be my biggest one.  In an upcoming post I will be sure to give you all dimensions so you can get a feel for my big one.

Here is a sneak peek at my quilt.  The working title for now is A New Twist On An Old Pattern.
