Yes,  Patty’s at it again . . .

PattyKoontz_WeDarby_ColoringBook

 

 

 

I’m having a grand time designing a variety of sketches, including the characters and friends of Wee Darby’s, and making them into coloring books – for ALL ages!  I’m excited to share my new cover which just came out last week!  The 2nd coloring book in this series is scheduled for release this fall.

And, with plenty of new surprises in store . . . .  Since I have a following of people of “all ages” reading my stories,  I have decided to call my latest art work venture,

 

 Patty’s Fairy Folk Art.

Here’s my display last weekend at our local, Lawn and Garden Center

Here are a few samples – remember – these are still in rough draft, but at least it will give you an idea of how I start my images

Many years ago, I had my own ceramic shop, gave lessons, and set up at  juried shows selling my work. My love for my Samoyeds, began my journey into the world of spinning their undercoat and working with various fibers – and needle felting too. . .

I then ventured on, to stained glass, where I created my own designs while  writing my stories, and still working full time.

But . . . there was still something haunting me from my past – from when I was a wee lass in school.  I LOVED Art classes  – that was . . . until the day an art teacher pulled me to the side, and told me I had “No artistic abilities”, and advised I try my hand at something else . . . .  so  the point I’m getting at – don’t ever give up your dream, like my beloved Mum, used to tell me.

Please check back soon, when I post my calendar list to my upcoming shows and book signings.  If you get a chance to stop by, I’d love to chat and show you a wee bit of my work . . .

And as always,

Best Wishes and Bye for now . . .  don’t forget to leave a comment . . . I always love to hear from you . . .
