Julie Mitchell- Timberline Gallery
Another artist friend Julie Mitchell.. Her wonderful Spirit Figures are showing at Timberline Gallery also.. My Muse hangs in my studio just above my work table, and when I am at a lose, I ask her to please help me be more creative, or at least share her ideas with me..
Then I go to bed, and usually sometime during the night ideas float through my head.. The trick is to have a piece of paper near to write down the thoughts..
If you fall in love with one of Julie's Spirit Figures, better get up to the Gallery quick.. Her jewelry and dolls sell fast.
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.
