My art

 My art is another part of how I process the world around me.  It has become difficult to separate my blogging from my art so I decided to make a page that is dedicated to featuring my latest works.

Mostly I dabble in what people call “fabric art.”  I make wall hangings and small gifts of fabric, yarn, thread, beads and other trinkets.    I also make small sock dolls that I call Journey dolls.  I started them in 1998 as gifts for friends of mine that were either traveling or in transition and they have become popular by word of mouth.  I usually have some sort of knitting I’m working on and I’ve dabbled in collage.

From February 2008 to February 2009 I worked on a journal quilt, creating 43 five inch squares over the course of a year and journaling about the work. 

I like having work that I can do in my lap.  I’m inspired by words and images, textures and materials.  I can’t stop creating so it makes sense to merge my projects.
