Precious Desert Oasis

Precious Desert Oasis

The 2020 - 2021 drought here in Arizona has finally broken. Here, I imagine the joy of the tiniest creatures to finding the first raindrops, their tiny oasis. I used Derwent Inktense pencil and Tsukineko ink to create the water drops. 27 inches wide x 41 inches long July 2021 Photo by Stacie Moats $800

Bisbee Nightscape

Bisbee Nightscape

This nightly scene in downtown Bisbee always takes my breath away. The sunset sky, the happy lights overhead, and the historical architecture inspires me. For this quilts, I added Swarovski crystals at the center of each light to add some "bling". Photo by Stacie Moats 39 inches wide x 33 inches long Feb 2020 $800

Pond Lilies

Pond Lilies

I found these water lilies during a tour of the Denver Botannical Gardens. The morning sun lit up the interior of those blossoms, lighting up the flower from within. Photo by Mark Hollingsworth 30 inches wide x 34 inches long April 2018 $350

Mr. Squirrel is Guarding the Hen House

I found this little squirrel with the impossibly long tail during a sightseeing trip to Golden, Colorado. He was stationed on the chicken wire above a coop, stealing a meal. Photo by Mark Hollingsworth 35 inches wide x 65 inches long May 2018 $800

Horizon

Horizon

This is a piece where I play with the traditional Drunkard's Path quilt block. Rearranging the block shapes invokes a 2-dimensional image of mysterious structures. The sky dominates the background. In this case, the sky is a "Supernova" pattern fabric with beaded accents. For this quilt, I used Swarovski and glass seed beads for the "comet" that shines in the dark.
