I have been sketching, printing and designing all kinds of inspiration boards.
This fabric started as a photo,
Then I used photoshop elements and lots of layers to produce a fabric design, which I then printed by Spoonflower.
I covered a canvas bulletin board with the fabric and had it professionally framed.
I just a had to add some Inspiration Board Jewelry and decorative pushpins. I have been making rosettes from Vintage flower petals designed for millinery with a large upholstery pin for the center. Finding tassels to match the boards and all kinds of wonderful notions that might add just the right embellishment.
So, now my new shop I call A WORD OF INSPIRATION is open.
My plan is to add BAGS OF INSPIRATION by theme to help make inspiration boards sparkle.

- I was raised in Long Island, New York and in my early twenties, moved to Manhattan and worked there for many years in the computer field. I have been an artist as long as I can remember. I started painting in 1983 while living in Princeton, New Jersey. I found lots of inspiration when we moved to Hong Kong for my husband's work. Five years later, we moved to Toronto. We returned to New England in 2002 and I have enjoyed all the creative and inspiring resources that surround me. The Lord has blessed my life with a wonderful family and many gifts.
