I absolutely love your art. Wow! I'm Speechless. Have you been quilting a long time? Did you learn a lot from the pictorial technique class? I was debating about this class but when I saw your art I thought it might be worth taking. Lastly did you study art or are you teacher or professional artist? Have a great day, you are inspiring!

Thank you for your wonderful comments. I have been doing art quilts for a year and a half. I joined a quilt guild about two years ago and a lady was saying that she did art quilts. I had never heard of art quilts. Then another lady saw a few of my paintings and encouraged me to turn my painting style into a quilting style. Yes I taught art in public school before retiring and sold art in galleries. "Ruby" was my first art quilt. I have done 4 more since then. The class you mentioned was very good. I however use only fused applique because so many of my pieces are very small. However I have thought about working up a teaching project using Wendy Berns technique as people are always asking me to teach,

She's amazing. You didn't use that many fabrics in the face but captures the dimension and shadowing.
