Hi, let me introduce myself..... I'm Roxanne Murphy and this is my first ever blog.
It's intended to be an exercise in dicipline ( I hope to post about once a week), a place to explore the inspirations and frustrations of life.... and mostly a chance to share my work with others. The succeses and the learning opportunities, after all, there's no real failures in art... is there? Just new opportunities to explore and create.
As a taste of what's to come, here's the piece that launched me into the world of textiles and art quilting!
Titled - View from the Heights, size 8"x11"
Created for a challenge back in Feb 2010, in Quilting Arts magazine, this was my first ever art quilt. To my supprise it was chosen as a finalist and published in the magazine. (http://www.quiltingdaily.com/media/p/15725.aspx)
I've been experimenting with art quilting and textiles ever since.
I hope you enjoy what's to come and maybe I can help to inspire other artists to explore, play and just have fun!
