Most of the inspiration for my artwork comes from nature. I love nothing better than being outside observing and sketching. I do not have an art background...my degree from Ohio University is actually a BS in Zoology. And I started out in botany, so I really do have a broad scope. All I ever wanted to be "when I grew up" was a park naturalist. I never got paid to do it...I just do it on my own. Nature makes my soul sing. I know, that sounds "cheesy", but it's true.
I totally have a quilt planned in my mind using the different coleus color patterns. I mean....just look at that acid green against the ruby red!? It just cries to be put into fabric!!
