I Love it ALL!

I have loved to create just about anything from mud pies to paintings since I was a small child. The thing I love most about art is that there are so many ways to express yourself. You don't have to pick just one area. That is one of the great things about being an art teacher as well is that there are millions of different art ideas and then each child expresses that idea in their own way. It is so much fun to see what inventive minds come up with when given a task.

Here are some of the pieces I have done over the years. I still like to dabble in a little bit of everything.

Drawing and Painting

Both of these paintings were inspired by the images of Giorgia O'keefe. The top one created with acrylic paint and the bottom with oil paint.

These are all quilts and bags that I have created on my own. They are not from a pattern. Most of these were commissioned based on a room, or desired colors.
