My artistic journey has included a wide variety of mediums. I started painting with oils when I was 7. I sold my first painting when I was 13, and ever since that time, I have been painting, writing, sketching, taking photos, making ceramics, designing and making clothes, jewelry and more. Art in all its forms has been my constant companion. This blog displays some of my work and discusses my process.

Lace Baptismal blanket
This baptismal blanket was made for a friend's grandchild from cotton thread, entirely worked by hand. It has a double lace border, one longer than the other, of differing motifs. This blanket took about 40 hours to make and would cost approximately $250 if I were to make one to order for you in this same size. This is an original item of my own design.
The next few pictures depict a hat that I created to match the baby blanket. Keep in mind that these items are sized for a newborn. The hat was very labor intensive. Again, it is of my own design, and is elaborately hand-worked. It is also made from 100% cotton thread. A similar hat would be priced at $75.
All items on this page must be hand-washed in mild soap, very carefully, and laid out to dry in a manner that will keep their shape.
If you would like me to make you a similar blanket and/or hat, please contact me by email with the message line LACE BLANKET to firstname.lastname@example.org and I will give you a quote.
In the meantime, God bless everyone! Pray for me, as I pray for you.
