the joy of creation

I am sure I am not alone in reaching a point in life and wondering when life got so serious - how often do we do things with no outcome in mind, no fixed purpose, just for the fun of it?  When I hit that point I remembered back to all the things I had loved doing as a child and decided to pick up my paint brushes again.  That began a journey from watercolours to acrylics, printing to felting and a whole melting pot of mixed media.  More importantly it encouraged me to stop and look at the world and take the time to just enjoy and explore.  Here is a sample of what I have seen.  I hope you enjoy looking around my online gallery.

Wool and other textiles

Exploring various print and painting techniques on textiles eventually led to a technique combining textiles with acrylic paints.  I am currently exploring the use of flowers to dye silk to combine with felt making.
