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.

Pink Roses Heaven Part II

As many of you may remember, last spring, I had the pleasure of meeting a lovely 91 years young lady named Irene Marshall who hand paints china and porcelain. I remembered on this visit to bring a good camera, rather than trying to snap shots with my cell phone. I had so many pics, I decided to create a slide show. I wish all of my blogger friends had the opportunity to visit her studio in Salem, Oregon. Truly a remarkable lady. I walked away with a large box of her beauties that I will be listing on my website soon. I hope you enjoy her lovely hand painted treasures as much as I do!

I think she has been here to TN a few years ago. I have a couple little items a very old woman painted. I bet it was so hard to choose. It was all soooooooooo beautiful.
I am following you now, won't you follow me?

Warm blessings,
