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 may be surprised that even tho I am all about pink and roses, my home decorating as a whole does not reflect that. I made a compromise with my hubby sometime back. He simply cannot live with too many flowers on the walls or windows, let alone pink!! But he does love vintage and retro, so we have our bedroom in French Victorian toile decor and the great room is mission style. My studio and guest room are totally shabby cottage!! Our Christmas decor is decidely very Victorian traditional. Mind you I do have some pink ornies snuck in here and there on the tree.If you remember last years post I had a HUGE tree. This year I was good, I kept it at 8 feet instead of 14 feet....
This year I decided to take my photos with a night time setting just at sunset. I also poked the camera in the tree to share some sparkle.
I tried a new grouping on my mantel this year by using varied levels
