Originals is an award winning artist with
over 41 years of art experience and professional sales in
multiple art mediums. She has lived in Mesa, Arizona for over
34 years and
currently her art studio views the
city. Sewing at a young age brought creative exploration back to the
basics of fiber along with the knowledge of multiple
art mediums. The
graphic journey from design
drawings of clothing ads, commercial window displays, and the
articulate approach of painting, surface design and photographic
original image printing into fiber, cultivated the
forgiving dimension of the Art Quilt. These ‘Ah
hah’ artistic moments interpreted fiber art quilts as her
chosen art medium. An art
collector enthusiast herself, she reflects these experiences
into her energetic creative stream.
