After enjoyable and gratifying careers in the medical and business fields I find myself on a journey to uncover, develop and to express this inner artist that I have joyfully discovered.  While I am focused on designing and making art quilts I am also a photographer and have been doing more mixed media of late. My poetry began as a means of self expression while journaling but I found that it is increasingly a practice that I enjoy for its own sake.

I love to work with all kinds of fibers and embellishments in order to create texture and to use various painting techniques to get just the effect that I’m looking for.   I very often use my own hand dyed fabric to achieve my artistic goal.

I am in love with color – saturated vibrant color.   I have learned that there truly are no “quilt police” when it comes to one’s personal expression of creativity;  no right or wrong way.  It just has to feel right and look right to you;  – it is all a voyage of discovery.

  5. Guila, your art is almost as beautiful as you are. I guess they go hand-in-hand! Is there an easy way to access the info about breast cancer, like sending me a link. I don’t use FaceBook very much.



    1. Laurie – thanks for reading my blog and for your sweet comment.
      I have forwarded you a letter than I received from a good friend who is a breast cancer survivor. She goes into detail as to what has taken place as well as a ‘call to action.’
      Thanks again Laurie.
