In the Studio;

‘Times Three’ a new acrylic painting is finished and new paintings are in progress at the Rimbey Art Studio. At my home studio I’m working on some fabric art that will include quilting and raw-edge applique. When I’m not working on that I’m writing a new novel; the first of three in a series of YA adult science fiction.

Here’s a detail from my quilted and appliqued fabric art piece “Blue Butterflies”.
