I am artist of texture and color. I enjoy working with textiles, mixed media and the graphic arts. I am an avid cottage gardener with a love for pass along plants and big fluffy pink peonies and pink roses. Many of my tangible creations reflect my love of the garden and all its wonderful colors. I am not one who will settle for neutral colors as they bore me. I have been selling my creations online since 2002 beginning as a hobby and 10 years later my art is my full time passion.

some new garden pics
Many of you who have known me for a while, have discovered my other passion--cottage gardening. My cottage garden has suffered this year, because (as I joke now--but it wasn't funny when it happened) Dr. Death paid a visit in early spring. He hates me to tell the story, but my other half (DH Jim) thought he would help out and spray weed preventer in my cottage garden. Nothing else to say other than it has taken all season to get things back to normal, and he stays at least 6 feet from the edge of my gardens.
But now, on the eve of the rainy season, the cottage garden is glorious and even this young first year clematis perked a few blooms. When I took these pics, it had just finished a rain shower, so everything was so beautiful and colorful!
