Thanks for stopping by! This website and blog features my creative life, including machine quilting, design work, illustrations, mixed media art, writings, and information about my classes- both online and in person.
I love to create using a wide variety of mixed media, including fabric, fibers, beads, metal, found art, and digital art.
My background is as a self taught artist and designer. You can buy my digital quilting designs carried exclusively at Digitech Designs.
The blog address is named after my cartoon, Feathered Fibers, which often features a chicken who has a rather sarcastic and humorous view on life and quilting.
The cartoon illustration on the right is not autobiographical, but was inspired by a young friend who got a tattoo. Fast forward 40 years, throw in a dose of reality, and there is where my mind went. Ok, I freely admit to having a weird sense of humor!
Living in Northern California, I am happily married to Joe Barrett for over 30 years now. We recently adopted our grandson, Ethan, who we have cared for since his birth in 2011, so are having lots of fun raising him. He keeps us young.
Together, Joe, Ethan and I love to sail on our sailboat, bareboat charter, travel and plan to one day sail to tropical locations in a bluewater cruising sailboat. In the photo on the right, I am taking a noon sight while learning celestial navigation on a recent sail expedition in French Polynesia and The Cook Islands.
Thanks for visiting!
