I saw these cairns when walking one day on the beach. They really captured my interest.

Inspired by a photo of the breakwater at Camp Ellis, Maine, I made this piece. The sky and water are hand painted and the rocks are commercial fabrics. The seagulls are all done completely in thread.
While visiting Yellowstone Park, I was struck, not only by the beauty of the park, but also the park management system that kept everything as it was and allowed for new growth and regeneration to take place after the massive fires. This piece represents the mountains, the new growth which occurred after the fires and the actual fires – the sheer yellow and orange strips.

While working on this, I was reminded of a vacation in the south when I was a young girl. We drove through swamps with Spanish moss hanging from the trees. It was very eerie and spooky!

The red/orange tulips were a still-life display for a drawing/painting class. While drawing them, I visualized myself admiring the tulips in a window opened onto the beach, and I could feel the warm spring breeze. Entire piece is machine appliquéd using commercial and hand-dyed/hand-painted fabrics. Sparkle and dimension were added with melted cellophane, organza, Angelina fibers, metallic threads and fabric paint.

The Cascade Falls are a hidden gem near where I live. They are very close to busy route one in Saco, but when you walk to the falls, you would never know it. The insert is a photo printed on fabric and the rest of the landscape extends from the photo.
