Arapahoe Libraries is proud to host art exhibits each month at Eloise May, Koelbel and Smoky Hill libraries. Library galleries offer the community a place to view a variety of art at no cost while also providing visibility to local artists. A volunteer art selection committee selects exhibits based on artistic quality, variety of exhibits and the suitability of format for each exhibit space.

I define myself as a quilt artist; fabric and thread are my medium. Inspired by nature and the world around me, I am drawn to vibrant colors and bold designs, and enjoy experimenting with new techniques and methods. I mainly create small art quilts and wall hangings to add that special touch to any home.

Her artistic endeavors are inspired by “challenges and an interest in all things new”. Developer of FishBone Art - entirely new mixed media, using natural fishbones, repurposing them into delicate scenes, placed on black velvet. Working with different types of fishbones allows her to create original, unique, 3D compositions of flowers, birds, animals, and landscapes. Each piece seems to give the fish a new life in an unexpected way. She now resides in the mountains of Boulder, with a custom art studio and sewing workshop where she designs and creates her art.
