Putting it All Together

Putting it All Together

As a textile illustrator, I am forever seeking new fibers and materials to enhance my work. Learning new techniques allows discovery of fun textures in the process. In “Teatime For Poppies,” the main character, a skunk, appeared to me in meditation. Meditation is the inspiration for ALL of my artwork. It’s THE essential step in my creative process and why I’ve written a book about it.
