Welcome to FontanaOriginals...

All art holds my interest.  Whether looking at a famous painting, sculpture or live theater I am always trying to absorb what the artist is sharing and find my relationship to it.  I find inspiration everywhere and try to use all my senses to capture that expression in fabric:  art quilts, mixed media, textile portraits, quilted bags, photography on whole cloth then embellished with thread, painting on fabric, etc. 

 

I will never limit myself to just one medium or form of expression.  The beauty of our world begs us to absorb every last drop in any way we can.  Come let us create a more beautiful world together through our art!
