This weekend is the Haleiwa Art Festival where i show my arts and talk story and show and tell how my art starts as an idea and then speak of some of the process to get to the finished product. i have shown in this juried show for ten years and i look forward to it again this years. so many children come through the tent during this great summer weekend and they are so full of life and ideas . they totally "get" using household items , reusing scraps , upcycling humble items , and found treasures of nature and man to make art . they are so much more aware of their environment then we were at the young age .

the yellow and pink hibiscus pillows above are one of my original designs using my painted fabric and yardage .     
            i will have fabric, patterns, and finished art
                 to sell at Haleiwa Arts festival.

stop by and say hi!
