When I was in high school, a friend once told me that if I ever stopped drawing, a bolt of lightning would strike me. So, I've decided to not tempt fate.
While I love drawing, I have been focusing on creating soft sculpture Dragons, Faeries, and other fantasy creatures for the past 25 years. I don't use a pattern for any of them, each piece is unique. Each piece is also nearly completely hand sewn. This is a part time hobby, so it takes me a long time to complete each one. I keep hoping to make enough to take to an art show in the next year or so. Most of the photos of my work are pre-digital, but as soon as I have some digital pics of my recent creations I will post them on my page.
