Do you remember your excitement the first time you cut an apple differently and found the star?

My art explores keeping that wonder. Colorful, whimsical art, fabric and surface design. 

 

 

 

Introducing "Pickles"

 

My latest design! A little bear lovey for infants. Printed on Spoonflower's luscious, so soft minky. Pickles will be available soon in my Etsy shop.

Poured Sunrise 

January 2019. A new-to-me medium of pouring thin acrylic paint on a canvas

and moving the canvas back and forth to see where the paint wants to go.

 

The story behind the Story Drapes

I've always liked the fabric with the writing that one can't read because what looks like words, really aren't.  After buying a yard of fabric with such a design to test the color I needed, it wasn't available when I returned to the store. So I decided to design my own. New to Adobe Illustrator and with Spoonflower's wide range of colors, I managed to design a panel using part of a story I'd written. The story is "Art Class," one of my Family Reunion series.  The granddaughter for whom this story is dedicated read the drapes when she was visiting and said "That's me talking. Aunt Holly loves Pierre!" 

 

From Canvas to Fabric. 

Designs from my original art are printed by Spoonflower in Durham, North Carolina, the fabric and surface printer. The "Alphabet Train" poster has moved to a toddler reading blanket.

I WAS PUBLISHED IN Somerset Apprentice, Spring 2017. What a delight for my "coffee filter sand castle art" to be published in one of the beautifully photographed and edited publications from The Stampington and Co.

A point of personal privilege ... One of my young granddaughters innocently asked an older friend, "My grandmother is an artist and my grandpa works at Walt Disney World. What do you do all day?"
