About Me

My photo
Sublimity, OR, United States
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.

I have always been fascinated with the uniqueness of doors. Doors are an entry way to a new or different view. Most don't notice the door, they only anticipate what is on the other side.

I keep my camera handy in our travels and snap a pic whenever I see one that is interesting...

  This was taken at the Oregon coast at an abandoned storefront. The weathered chippy and shabby coastal colors fascinated me. My hubby thought I was a little crazy

 I saw this door in Northern California. It had to be the narrowest I have ever seen. Just a little over 2 feet wide.

The tallest door that was an average door width.The handle looks low, but it isn't. This was taken at the restored Tallman Inn at Upper Lake, Ca.

A few years ago we took a southern Caribbean cruise that departed San Juan Puerto Rico which in Old San Juan is know for it's unique doors...

I loved how the doors were different on each floor of this building in San Juan

this last door is in Paris.
The photo was taken by Pam of the Plucky Maidens, she was gracious to let me borrow her picture

Hope you enjoyed my "door tour" I am sure there will be more in our summer travels to share with you.

until then.....
