I have been drawing and designing since I was a little girl. As a child I drew constantly and made my own paper dolls, not knowing that I would grow up to establish my own clothing pattern company. I have also continued the the quilting heritage passed down to me by my grandmother, Hulda Baker, my mom Dolores Baker, and my aunts Donna Easterday and Ramona Schofield, and I am now designing quilt patterns commercially as well. In 2008 I returned to my artistic roots and began spending a lot more time drawing and painting. Now we have retired to the Asheville area and I am able to pursue my art even more wholeheartedly. So much has transpired in the last two years, I can hardly wait to see what exciting things God has planned for the coming years. He is swinging open doors of opportunity that I never knew existed.
Well, today was the final day of the Pastel Workshop. We went back to Montreat, and this time I decided to paint the water. We had to leave before I was finished, so there is still some tweaking to do on it. I think it turned out pretty well. I certainly feel like I have learned a lot in the past 3 days. Thank you, Karen!
