Because of my love of creating art with fabric and fiber, ok, and beads, paints, and all things shiny, I have decided to begin writing a blog to share my journey with you. It will be filled with twists and turns, so fasten your seat belt. There could be some sudden turns and changes of direction!
I have loved the arts as long as I can remember. Even as a wee one I saved my copies of "Highlights" magazine and made the crafts I found in there. Along the way I have embroidered, used wool for crewel, done some needlepointing, done a little quilting, and thrown some stained glass in there, too! I'm always learning something new. And the fun of mixed media art is that you can use all of it in some way or another.
For the past 4 years I have been a member of the RiverCity Figurative Artists' Guild. We all make figurative art, but approach it in different ways. Some use cloth, some polymer clay. Still others use needle felting or found objects. All put their heart into their creations and have shared their knowledge generously.
Recently though I have also decided to branch out into art quilting. I have a lot to learn, and I'm so excited. I use other peoples patterns for my figurative art, but with art quilting, I think I will develop my own style. That will take making a lot of quilts to figure out just what that is, but that's the fun of it! So I hope you will stay tuned and enjoy along with me!
