Eagle Quilted Art / Eagle Tale


The Eagle has returned/it is exciting to look up in the sky and see a Bald Eagle

souring overhead.   They are also nesting in the Eugene area and raising young.


The Bible tells us ” they that  wait upon the Lord

shall renew their strength — they shall mount up with

 wings as the Eagles”

I feature Eagles in many of my Quilted Art pieces,

using photos taken on my nature walks.

The  2010 Coburg Quilt Show has come and gone. Coburg is a small town just north of Eugene Oregon that hosts a quilt show each July. It featured wonderful Traditional Quilts in an outdoor setting.  Plus Art Quilts and a special showing of the Hoffman Challenge traveling quilt show,  displayed at the historic William Van Duyn House, built in 1877 .


I was privileged to be the Featured Artist at the show,  displaying my pictorial/photo/collage/quilted art.

ART QUILT – A Whale of a tale


Roseburg Oregon 2011 Quilt Show– received 2nd place ribbon
Cordova Alaska 2010 National Mixed Media Art Show

SUMMER ADVENTURE: A summer at Portage Bay Alaska:

Let me share with you  A WHALE OF A TALE.

Speeding along in a 28 ft boat on a trip to the town of Petersburg the adventure of

the summer unfolds with a close encounter of the ORCA kind.

Breaching is a behavior in which a whale speeds to the surface and leaps completely

out of the water —– falling back with a spectacular splash. And when that happens

about 40 yards away and the killer whale is as large as the boat —– it becomes—–


Just another true Alaska adventure.

CORDOVA ALASKA .   Black Bears Buffet received an HONERABLE MENTION in the  national mixed media art show held each year at the Cordova museum.. 

Pictorial quilted art is the medium that I work in using a collage style with  personal digital photography.  I transfer the photography to cloth  then combine  it with commercial and hand dyed fabric  leting me share stories in the round. 




My goal for you

 is to look at my

quilted art and

 have it tell you

 a story………..

In the little Black Bears first summer he spent many happy hours at his mothers side.  As he tumbled and played he also learned how to forage for food and where to sleep.  As the seasons changed he learned how to survive in the Alaska wilderness.   His classroom was filled with excitement — dangers — and the thrill of the unknown.

In his first year alone after leaving his mothers side the little black bear remembered the stream near Cordova where the salmon came each year to spawn.  It was a BLACK BEARS BUFFET for a short time each year.   It was a  time to eat until he was fat and chubby, a time of plenty.  Soon it would be the winter season and he would make a warm and snuggly den to spend the winter dreaming of next years BUFFET.

Black Bears Buffet 2009 ……SOLD ……. and I am happy that he will be making his home in Cordova.
