Neat but a little creepy

Often my art is inspired by nature but I discovered this dragonfly out in our waterfall (which was drying out for renovation) after I made my little dragonfly collage piece (previous post). It had recently emerged from it’s nymph shell. I think that hollow nymph is a little creepy. When there is water in the waterfall there are nymphs darting around in the water but this is the first time I have seen the two still together. The nymph had crawled out onto a knot of the barley bag rope. The circle of life is amazing!

I started sewing and designing using fabric, thread, and paper when I was a child. I taught myself to make quilts, at first not following the "rules," then watched some experts, learned the rules, and made many hand quilted and appliqued quilts. I spent years focusing on miniature landscape quilts. Now I am a fiber and mixed media artist and that encompasses everything I have a passion for. I have taught, lectured, and my work have show nationally and internationally, some pieces have been published.
