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.

Walls of roses

So lucky in the fact that my day job takes me past Heirloom Rose Gardens, that I can make the 2 3/4 mile side trip off the main road to snap a few pics....Not quite a total explosion of blooms yet, the PNW is about 3 weeks behind due to the 2nd wettest coldest spring on record here. BUT, the climbing roses were in full bloom, so I decided today to focus on "the Walls of Roses

Sorry, I didn't take the time to write down all the names--my main mission was to get a pic of the Eden rose since that is my newest edition to my garden. I also have the Mary rose which is my all time favorite. A big cabbage rose that is very fragrant. A bouquet will scent an entire room!

Oh what a beautiful place to be able to visit! I love heirloom roses and Eden is a favorite. I hadn't heard of Mary Rose and will have to see if that will survive Colorado weather!
