I have a thing for hybrid artwork. And when I say “hybrid” I mean in both the sense of multi-media as well as combining two separate and unique themes. This Paper Quilled Poppycock combines quilled poppies with a quilled peacock. Two of my favorite subjects!

What a year 2020 has turned out to be? About a month into the lockdown, I finally got out of my funk and created this Paper Quilled Spring Bee. It was literally one of the few times over the spring that I felt creative. I

I’m slowly getting back into the groove of quilling. Today I made a mini quilled poppy landscape. I used a design I had created a few years ago that was a full 8×10 as inspiration for this piece, not really knowing whether reducing it to

Oh how I love this quilled white orchid lily. One of the most striking parts of this piece is how 3D it is. The images don’t really give a good sense of how much depth I achieved between the 1/4″ base “petal” and the top
