Last week, my agent Alicia Dauber and I had the opportunity to visit our wonderful fabric license partner, Robert Kaufman Fabrics in Los Angeles. We toured the warehouse, seeing how the large rolls of fabrics arrive from Asia, how the rolls are stored and then watched as the fabrics were put onto the paper bolts, ready for shipping to stores. We also visited the design department and saw many of our new collections in progress. Thanks so much to Evie Ashworth for the great tour!

One of my newest licensees, Joanna Sheen Ltd., has just released a 2 CD set with my work titled From the Heart of the Garden. I'm so thrilled with everything they've done to produce this wonderful set. Thanks to everyone who bought the CD and have done such great projects with my work, it's so much fun to see what everyone has created!

Welcome to my blog! I'm an artist - it's not just what I do but how I see the world. I find inspiration everywhere...in nature, music, friends. I am very fortunate these days to being able to license my art to some wonderful companies for greeting cards, calendars, fabrics, giftware and scrapbook products and more. Thanks for visiting!
