My large tapestries are becoming more and more then stuff that dreams are made of for me. Not because they seem so fantastical, but because they allow me to express myself as I always hoped to be able to in painting and art. I love the way light reflects off the material. I love the vibrant colors I am able to get in the landscapes and I love adding detail in both painted color and in stitching.
Each piece is unique, one of a kind. Whether it is a wall hanging, a cmfortor to snuggle under, or a pillow for hugging and snuggling with , they feel so sublimely sensuous to the touh and a are a feast for the eyes and the soul... I am the luckiest woman in the world to be able to create and share these! Everyday I work on a new piece and explore new color combinations, new ways to define the landscape for myself. This is what life should be about!
until next time
Create beauty and fill the world with love!
