Welcome! ....As a Painter and Textile Artist....... I also make "stuff". I love the creative process... My design style spans from the charm and unpretentions of the Rustic, Folkart Primitives, the comfortable and pleasant Cottage/Traditionals, to the surprises in Found Object and the mystery of Improvisational Abstract. I am inspired by God and His creation... I design and paint, and sew and knit and carve wood, and enjoy needle handwork... My creative curiosity leads me from one to the next... I enjoy my garden, have a dog and a cat, love the outdoors, and I enjoy my family and friends! I currently live in the beautiful state of Idaho...

A Sad Day...Remembering Nissi

Today is a sad day.  I took my eldest dog, Nissi, to the vet and had her put to sleep.  She had granulomas on her legs that had turned into open lesions and numerous lumps...  Lately she would come and sit in front of me and look intently into my eyes with her own eyes showing her discomfort.  It makes me cry to think of it...  She had the sweetest way of expressing her appreciation by giving me a couple of the most tender and careful licks with her tongue on my hand...  My only comfort is that she isn't in any misery now....   Give your pets an extra hug for Nissi today...
