About Me

My photo
I've been making things since I was very young. My first-grade notebooks are full of doodles and drawings. My mom sewed, and on her classic black and gold, 1945-era Singer, I started sewing pieces of fabric together, then doll clothes, and by 7th grade I was making my own dresses for school. I began college in 1968 as an Art major, and continued to experiment with many different media. As a young married woman (age 20!) I began making all my gifts at Christmas time for family members: ornaments, stuffed animals, and many other things. I made curtains and re-upholstered furniture for all the houses we lived in. I took inspiration from every source: magazines and books, nature, museums, stores and TV shows. I've tried pottery, oil painting, water-color painting, fabric crafts of all kinds, knitting, crochet, paper collage, beading and jewelry making, shell crafts, furniture painting, paper-mache creations, doll-making, quilting.....you name it, I've probably given it a try. I still get excitement from seeing something that makes me think, "I CAN DO THAT!!", and I go home and get started.

Cold Weather Works

Frigid valley temperatures have given me the opportunity to work on lots of new projects.  New crocheted totes, wrap bracelets, and a batch of Valentines Day stones for the Arts Center Shop.
  I love working on these, but am looking forward to getting outside.  It's so cold I can barely finish a 40 minute walk.  In another week we'll be back in Arizona and southern New Mexico for some sun and golf.  More pictures to follow of a couple other projects in progress!
