Thank you, Elk Run!

Not only are their wines absolutely delicious, but they have FABULOUS taste in art — Elk Run Wineries bought one of my pieces at The Toast To Frederick Wine Festival over the weekend! 🙂  It was great show, and I felt so blessed to be there.  Tammy O’Connor, who organized the Frederick Arts Council booth, did a fabulous job – Thanks you, Tammy.  And thanks again to Elk Run.

I have always loved the process of transforming pieces of fabric into quilts. For years I collected scraps, just to be sure I'd have the right piece for the project at hand. Eventually, as my skills progressed, my hobby grew into art. I moved from simple quits, to 'landscape quilting' and then eventually onto portrait work. I am new to the art field and am self-taught, learning from my mistakes as well as from my successes. I create my images using only fabric and thread. I remain true to this limitation for two reasons; first, I love the challenge of finding new ways to depict ever more challenging subjects. Second, fabric work remains my true love. I enjoy the hunt for fabrics; where other artists might blend oil paints, I love finding that perfect shade or pattern for a specific need. I refer to my style as "gestalt impressionism" for one needs to take a step back from my pieces to get the whole picture. My view point changes by what is influencing me at the time. Recently I've begun to focus on the journey of the individual. I enjoy working on portraits of people whom I feel have lead interesting lives.

    I can claim the smallest chunk of credit for this one. I told her to include the cat. He is quite a personality…
