Her work is vibrant, with superb execution, and the breath of her ability is quite mindblowing. And to top it all of, she’s a really really nice person as well – some people get all the luck!
Get yourself a cup of tea, make yourself comfortable and then take a wander through her Flickr photostream. And then tell me what your favourite piece is.

  • OH! My heart did a little jump as i scrolled through my fave blogs looking for new posts! Thank you so much for featuring me here; it’s an honour!
    You are lovely lovely peoples :}

  • No, you are, arlee!

    I just love what you’ve been posting recently on flickr. I’m never seen anything like it before. It makes me want to reach into my screen to touch it. 🙂

  • You are so talented Arlee – lovely to see you as you deserve :O)

  • I just found your “name” … your work is outstanding! I note you and others had an exhibit last Oct in Calgary with the fibre arts theme. Is this a “yearly” show? I would like information if it is so. My sisters live south of Calgary and it is only an 8 plus hr drive from the Spokane area … I would like very much to attend any future fibre arts show you are in. Thank you for any such information.
