FEATURE ARTICLE: Joyce Watkins King
My friend, Joyce Watkins King, is an amazing artist who lives right here in Raleigh, NC. She is a strong and beautiful person, who does original and beautiful mixed media art. I took some pictures for y’all so you could enjoy her art too.
You can find out more about Joyce on her Facebook Page, and be sure to comment and “like” her page, too! I love her use of texture, color and pattern, which she achieves by stretching hosiery over square blocks. So clever!
Did You Know?
That I am on Pinterest? Did you know that there are many amazing art quilts and traditional quilts being pinned every day, just waiting for you to look at?
Never before has so much inspiration been in one place. It’s like having an art museum in your hands. If you haven’t checked it out, there are many, many types of things being pinned.
It’s super easy to get started. You can take a look at my pins, which are organized on different “boards” HERE. Once you are on that page, you can click on the Get Started Button to make your own page on Pinterest. Then start pinning! I can spend a lot of time on Pinterest, because it’s all visual. And I have a feeling, you will too!

PRIVATE ART QUILTING MASTERY COACHING
To work with me privately, please set up your initial free Get Creative Call here:
And don’t forget, I make custom commissions too! Read what my client Glenda had to say about her custom commission experience:
“Normally, I would be anxious about commissioning someone to do a work of art such as this. However, I felt a connection to you when Leigh showed me your work. It resonated with me and when I met you, you seemed almost a personification of your work. I immediately felt comfortable with you and knew that what you would create would be stunning. And it is!”
Roxane is a full time studio textile artist and teacher with two girls and 1 fat cat. She is a 2012 Niche Award Winner and exhibits her work all over the world. Roxane enjoys traveling, knitting and most of all working with students who want to create their own fiber art, and not simply make other people’s patterns. Her work is in several private collections and loves doing custom commissions.
If you and a small group of folks want a more private instruction experience, call me. We can work out a studio workshop in my studio. Just drop me an email: firstname.lastname@example.org
