Draw close to God and He will draw close to you. James 4:8

Passion for making

Hi – I draw, mostly, and have come to understand that it has been my particular gift from God, for my joy and His. Art is my passion, pleasure and preferred means of expression, family and friends, my treasure.  August 2017, I celebrated seventeen years working as an artist/designer in the art licensing field. This was the path that led me to fabric design in the quilt industry where much of my attention is focused.  Connecting with this community offered an embracing, personal interaction to counter balance the isolation aspect of working independently.  I always enjoy sharing a chuckle as others connect with me through a character or particular illustration.  Images and the source of my inspiration are my privilege to share along with industry updates.  So, please let me know if you see anything that stirs an emotion.
