Calico Horses for Kids

Together we will be sewing items to be distributed to children in: Homeless shelters, Hospitals, Pregnancy Centers & Social Service Centers.
CAPE FOR KIDS is designed to help needy children feel special.
PROJECT LINUS is a worldwide project to assist the Homeless.


As part of my continuing efforts to help boost YOUR creativity, I have created a FUN new project.
I’m assembling a team who wish to become GLOBAL pen pals. We’re not here only to BOOST OUR CREATIVE ENERGY, but SHINE our lights onto a world in need. People miss connecting with artsy, like-minded people and now they can!

Let’s Paint with Inktense

Each year I set aside time to learn a new technique. I treat this as if I am going to college. I make a schedule and allow myself space to learn at my own pace. This is how I learned the ins and outs of painting on fabrics. After hours of experimenting with various paints I chose Inktense pencils by Derwent as they are superior in quality.

Monarch Sewing Art Challenge Winners

Congratulations to all of those who participated in this challenge. I am happy to announce that together we have raised over $500 for the Save Our Monarchs Foundation. A special thank you to our wonderful judge Susan Brubaker Knapp—fiber artist, teacher, author, and host of Quilting Arts TV.

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.
