As an artist, and because my piece got accepted into this year’s Art Maui show, I had to sit at the gallery for a few hours the other day.  It was a nice morning, there are still many visitors that come to this space, and I was able to have several interesting conversations regarding art… […]

Finished!  This is a little study I did while focusing on triangle.  I’m experimenting more with the quilting.  This little one measures 12″ x 12″. To give you a closer look at the quilting, I took close-up pictures and assembled them into a mosaic.  Without grout lines in between each square, the mosaic looks like […]

Our house has returned to our usual school-year routine around here and I’m finding myself back in this space.  It’s a little strange being here again, so I’ve decided to finish off that little quilt I spoke of earlier.  I’m almost done and I’ll show you tomorrow!  Cheers!

This has been a time of tremendous growth for our family.  We measured both of our sons and they each grew over an inch in the past two months!  I myself have embraced a new way of living… I’m eating much healthier, I’ve been drawn to meditation and yoga more, and my relationship with my […]

Things are really quiet in the studio these days.  Our children are off from school for one more week so I’ve been busy with them.  It’s such a blessing to be able to spend these lazy days with them.  We wander from one thing to the next… no particular schedule… each day bringng something new. […]

A friend of mine, Miriam, has been letting herself go with oil painting!  It’s great to see her branch out like this… with five children and a busy husband, it’s always nice to see here carve out a little something for herself.  I had the opportunity to purchase her work a couple of weeks ago […]

We spent the weekend in Hana… one of Hawaii’s best kept secrets.  It was the perfect way to launch our spring vacation; we spent time by the beach, we relaxed and we took walks around town… just to take it all in.  The fresh air smell and cool ocean breeze was refreshing.  The warm sun […]

It’s not everyday one receives a handwritten letter from someone… let alone forty someones!  That’s exactly what happened to me the other day!  The children that I helped make quilts with all wrote me letters of thankfulness and gratitude which I’ve looked at often and am thankful to receive!  I love how they told me […]

We are spending a few days by the shore. It’s wonderful to be here again where time slows and life becomes simpler. Evidence of the tsunami is all around, yet the spirit of this sleepy village remains undisturbed. Looking down at the ocean today, I see that the water continues to look messy and upset… […]

Thank you folks for your concern… we are safe and sound here on Maui.  Our house is well up the mountain so really we’ve been safe all along.  Just the same, it’s nice that you would think of me on a day like this.  My daughter and I had to run some errands down the […]

I am finishing up a few projects around here now that my run of classroom quilts is over.  I but the sleeve on this little gem the other day while watching my son ride his bike on the track.  It’s a sweet little piece made while I was pondering triangles.  The quilting is dense and […]

It was a busy weekend for me… I attended the Art Maui opening at the Maui Arts and Cultural Center where my piece “Elements #28” hung.  I’m finally able to show this one to you! I finished it last year and I remember liking the way I was able to incorporate solid hand-dyeds with clamp-dyed […]

I’m a little tired of these Classroom updates as I’m sure you are… so today I’ll bring you a simple shot of my studio: I spent the evening last night working to get it back into shape.  I hung a few old quilts, tossed unwanted magazines and clippings, folded and organized fabric… you know the […]
