Mixed Media Fiber Artist -me
Welcome to my new blog. I am a Mixed Media Fiber Artist, enjoying a variety of other media, gourds, quilting, painting, jewelry and photography.. I have a great husband, kids and grandkids, 4 llama's, cats, and a Queensland Heeler Dog, also known as an Australian Cattle Dog. I am lucky to have my own Home Studio, which I thought was big enough when I started, but seems to have gotten smaller in time. We love living out in the country and on a California River, which means that it is usually dry in the summer.
I am a mixed media fiber/quilt artist who loves to work with gourds,and jewelry. I am easily distracted with the next project, and have many going at one time. I have been teaching Fabric Dyeing and Beginning gourd art for many years. I am blessed with my own home studio. We live in the rolling hills near Yosemite National Park, in central Calif. U.S.A. This is a place of Inspiration, Blue Skies and Great Friends. I volunteer with several organizations,and have memberships in P.E.O., Coarsegold Historical So., Sierra Art Trails, Madera Circle Gallery, Yosemite Western Artist, Timberline Gallery and Sierra Mountain Quilters. I teach at my home studio and at local quilt gatherings.
