I'm on a mission to bring out the creativity in every person whom I encounter. Currently, I'm working on a book about creativity and a creativity workshop. You can be a part of the process by supporting me on Patreon.
My first fabric collection on Spoonflower started with a tulip. I used a technique called flower pounding to create an image on watercolor paper. I took a photo of the image and used Adobe Photoshop elements to create the patterns for the fabric. It was a fun project, and I love the results.
I like to make stuff! I paint, draw, photograph, glue, sew and much more. The cocktail party description is that I'm a mixed media artist. However, in my studio you might find me sewing, quilting, embroidering, creating digital art, designing fabric, or working on a mixed media piece.
At my core, I'm a teacher. I love sharing what I know and helping people gain skills and knowledge that enhance their lives. But here's a secret: I learn just as much from my students as they learn from me.
I find my inspiration, my subjects, and many of my materials in the natural world. In addition, I often up-cycle and re-purpose existing items into something new. Whether I'm creating a piece of art or sewing a new dress, nature-themes prevail.
