About Me

My photo
I was 53 in June. I feel like I'm 30. I live in Cold Cold Wisconsin. But, I love it here.. I found fabric and quilting about 8 years ago.. I fell in love with it.. I also enjoy paper art.. I'm not sure how I kept my sanity before I started doing art. I found rubber stamps about 10 years ago and have gone on to anything and everything.. I have been blessed with creative talents and love to express myself in art. I have 2 children .. one girl who is 15 and a boy who is 17. My husband and I love to hunt,canoe and just enjoy the outdoors together.. We all love the outdoors and go up to northern Wisconsin as often as possible. I'm a 14 year breast cancer survivor.. you can view more of my art at http://laurakrasinskiquilts.blogspot.com www.picturetrail.com/barngirl or my teaching, lecture and vending schedule here http://laurakrasinskisartontherun.blogspot.com

Oh my goodness, what a FABULOUS quilt. You perfectly captured the shading in his face. Great color choices, and the background is charming. We really enjoy seeing this quilt - congratulations and best wishes on the gallery show !!

Great quilt, and the shades of blue really fit the 'blue heeler'.

Hey you are in my home town. I have had a wedding and so much more this summer I am finally trying to catch up with some of the blogs I watch.

You have really been busy and congrats on teaching in Cedarburg.

I have to get over to the Art Gallery next week with my sister when she gets back from vacation. She made me wait!

I love this!! I have 2 ACD/Border Collie mixes, one of which is mostly ACD, and your quilt captures them so well. It is also artistically very interesting to me and really well done. Wish I could see it in person!

Do you get the SAQA e-mail? Rosie was the poster girl for the announcement of this show! Congrats - and she's beautiful. (My brother has a red heeler - they're great dogs)
