While teaching in Florida I took a road trip to Key West, which is a source of artistic inspiration — especially the beach!
During a vacation to Ephesus, Turkey, I fell in love with the cats roaming the countryside in the mist of the poppies and rocks. I love when nature inspires me to create! This particular cat has been created with a sewing machine using a free-style drawing.
This piece is created with hand-dyed fabrics. The frogs and dragonfly wings are drawn on the sewing machine, the dragon bodies and silk ribbon flower are hand stitched, and lily pads are quilted. This piece has a new home enjoyed by a friend’s grandbaby!
