About Me

I am artist of texture and color. I enjoy working with textiles, mixed media and the graphic arts. I am an avid cottage gardener with a love for pass along plants and big fluffy pink peonies and pink roses. Many of my tangible creations reflect my love of the garden and all its wonderful colors. I have been selling my creations online since 2002 beginning as a hobby. After 10 years I quit the day job to pursue my art as a full time passion.

Can you believe it??

I just had to share:)
I went to my cottage garden to continue the fall clean up task this afternoon--it usually takes me at least 4-5 visits to get it done :(
Believe it or not I picked these roses today! Yes, October 28! Here in the Pacific Northwest we have had some awesome Indian summer weather with temps close to 70f. The cool nights have brought out the best pinks of the whole season. These are David Austin roses--Glamis Castle, Mary Rose and Princess Marianna.

Debbi, your roses are stunning especially given the time of year. We had some gorgeous weather here in southern Ontario for weeks and my geraniums were still sprouting new buds!! But...we had some light flurries last night which means temps dropped WAY down...I wonder what they'll look like when I step outside shortly!! :)

Lucky you Debbi, it just turned really cold here in Ontario. They look absolutely beautiful :)
