Joanna Figueroa- Where Women Create
I was going through magazines and pulling articles that I want to keep.. The pile was so high I could not see the T.V. Just kidding. "Where Women Creates" is such a fun, informative mag. to look at and dream.. Not that I don't have the space, but it is not kept in order. And when you are like me and hop from painting on gourds, to painting on fabric... it tends to get a bit messy.
This photo was taken this summer at Camp WatchaPatcher in So. Cal. Joanna spoke and also taught classes with her beautiful fabrics. I fell in love with the soft look, since most of my work is just the opposite, a bit colorful, and wild. Check out her web site and blog .
We were very fortunate to have Joanna speak for our guild Sierra Mountain Quilters in Oakhurst several years ago. She is a very busy woman as most of you know, if you read her blogs and web site. Thank you again Joanna for sharing with us.
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.
