Meet Bonnie.........

I have to create. It can be home decor, drawing, sewing, inventing new uses for

things, or new ways to do things.

 

I first learned to sew on my mother's machine. I can still see where it was and

what I sewed. It was like magic-fast, amazing and a bit scary. From then on I was

hooked and have sewn almost everything our family has needed, short of

underwear and attaching buttons! (I have to draw the line somewhere!)

Since about 2000, I have developed Landscapes in Fabric into the creative business

it is today. I love the solitude of the the work time and interactions with people

who enjoy discussing the art process, and viewing my work.  My work is currently

displayed in The Hirdie Girdie Art Gallery in Sanibel, FL. Additionally I participate

in shows put on by my quilt groups. I teach classes and enjoy give presentations

anywhere I am asked. Ironically, I was an elementary teacher for 35 years and at

the time, hated giving presentations! Now I love it!

For many years I only did raw edge applique and thread sketching/painting. I pride

myself in not using any paint or ink to enhance the images. (Ok, once in a while I

do write house numbers with a fine marker, but that's it.) Very recently I began to

create with synthetic felt. It stitches and melts very easily so it is a great medium for creating textures on my landscapes. 

I hope you enjoy my site, be sure to sign up for newsletters so you don't miss any new developments. I've got exciting projects ahead!
