No Seriously, what do you want from me??  I want to be of service to YOU.  I want to write about what YOU want to know.  But, I can’t do that until I take a little survey of what interests YOU.

Here is your chance to really pick my brains.  I have been an artist all my life in one form or another, and I have a LOT I can share with you, so what would you like to know?  Please comment below so we can get the conversation started.

Here are some ideas to get you started:

  • inspiration
  • techniques
  • 3-D vs. 2-D
  • free motion quilting
  • working from photos to fabric
  • painting on fabric
  • dyeing
  • places to display your work
  • selling fiber art work
  • choosing fabrics
  • color
  • value
  • design & composition
  • finishing edges
  • hanging art quilts

It’s fun, fun, fun!!! The next one will be Sept. 7, 10-1 at my studio in Raleigh and we will be dyeing small pieces of fabric in cups.  If you’ve ever wanted to try your hand at dyeing, this will be a good intro.  I only have space for 8 at the most, so please email me if you want to come, roxane@roxanelessa.com



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!”
