Painting with stitches


 Rabbit Rabbit Rabbit

A commission piece
Painting with stitches and fabric
wall art - done in decorative fabrics and stitch work

Having creative freedom always allows me to have fun and not restricted by the demands of detail. But going absolutely buck wild with what I see and what I feel.
Design and color play a major part in what I do. I trust the process as I go along creatively. Sometimes I make mistakes but the result of those mistakes are beautiful and worth working with. My art at times can be personal, political, emotional, playful and times defensive. It really depends on my mood. I'm an emotional person and happy I can bring that out in many ways when it comes to art. For me art is my therapy. It has helped me in ways that I can say I'm grateful to have a gift that allows me to express. I wear my feelings and paint them, it's who I am. I'm comfortable being in my skin.

Blending in

Blending with Spring

This piece is done on arches watercolor paper 140lb cold press 
10 x 14. I love arches but so freakin expensive ey! I treated myself yesterday and I just love love the paper. I use Vincent Rossini handmade which I'm in love with but love to always try other papers. I want to make my own, that will be my next adventure project. 


This piece I used acrylic like watercolor and I love the way it seeps and spreads in the paper making it's own forms and shapes. I try not to over analyse what I doing. I just have fun!

Thank you for your lovely comments. I will visit soon!!!

A whimsical pop up portrait 

These are meant to be  wall art  on 5x5 wood block - These beautiful pieces are done in mix media - acrylic, gesso, charcoal on wood chip wood box against a wood block ready to hang for your wall.

I love them!!!!

I made these, two nights ago. A fun fun inspirational late night till 5am in the morning. I was beat but very happy to go to bed knowing that creating these was worth staying up late a weed hours of night watching Roswell.
I been staying up late till 2am and 5am while everyone is asleep. I love staying up creating. I enjoying working at night. It's pretty distracting during the day my studio is my living room, that means I have no privacy. People knock on the door, the phone is ringing. George stomps around and  in and out the door and I'm left feeling. Jesus, can a woman get some peace and quiet around here, without someone knocking on the door or the phone ringing. So I stay up and take advantage of the time while everyone else is sleeping. George doesn't quite like it. He loves to cuddle. I do too but when my creative juices are flowing, nothing can stop me. But I think tonight I might just go to bed early!!!!
Love and sweet kisses to you all!!!!
