About Me

The beautiful Pacific Northwest
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.

Do you love roses?

Feast your eyes! I had the opportunity to visit Heirloom Rose Gardens with a friend this weekend! I took way too many pics to post here, but here a bunch of my faves! Below is a wonderful quotation that was on a sign in one of the themed gardens, it is so inspirational to me, I hope you enjoy the roses as much as I do!

To see more about Heirloom Rose Gardens, see the guest author post I did
on the French Cupboard blog

Thank you so much for this it was a real treat for me! Along with creating art, roses are my other passion. I have close to 50 bushes growing on my property. There are three places I have always wanted to visit...David Austin Roses in the UK, Jackson & Perkins and Heirloom! Thanks for the glimpse of this awesome place!

Oh Debbi, Thanks for taking me to see those roses. You'd think after working with flowers all day for 37 years I'd be tired of them, but nope. Every rose is different. You can also smell the fragrance wafting thru!
