I consider myself being a ceramist or clay artist.I went out on a limb and did something quite different than my usual artwork with clay.I needed a challenge, something to get me up and running again. I painted "Whimsy Woman" on fabric, then appliqued it onto the back of a tabard made out of black fabric, I then had to sew it together. Ugh! This was submitted for the tabard challenge for the San Antonio Fiber Art Style Show . To my surprise, I won the Tabard Challenge. What was so exciting my sister, Sandra Edsall won the Best of Show! This wasn't rigged really!! By vote of 300 attentees.
I used a mix of acrylic, fabric medium and fabric paints for my painting. I accented with a gold metallic pen. The hair is Lutradur treated with paints and heat.

This necklace is made with hand-made terra cotta, glazed ceramic and fabric beads. The fabric beads are decorated with wire, turq chips and glass beads.Most of my necklaces are made with ceramic beads that are brightly glazed to complement every outfit.

After doing "Wild women" for a few years I needed to add some excitement to my sculptures. I decided why not "Birds of a Feather". The birds I make are whimsical and fun to do. I love creating a personality by giving them very expressive eyes! Then I dress them "fit to kill" with bright glazes, beads, ribbons, feathers and last but not least very large, oversize feet.
