My Student Natalie Moten


Natalie has taken every class I've ever offered here in Anchorage. She is such a fun student. Very creative. She picked leaves oust side & dipped them in paint then printed over commercial fabrics to make these leaves. Aren't they great?


This is her field of sun flowers.

This one is about the vote in Iraq.

& this last one is her self portrait. I am very proud to have helped her get to where she is now!

She is good! She should be proud too! I love the leaves! (I think I have the stamp she used for her hair!!)

Do tell Natalie she's a natural, I enjoyed seeing her creativity through cloth. She no doubt was a receptive student of what you had to offer via freedom of idea. How happy you must be to know you were the spark for what Natalie already had inside. Now, when will you get her to blogging, hhmmm??? PS... My word verification just now was "reborn",, is that weird or what ???

Must be Iran. Not Iraq.

Natalie's quilts are wonderful, I love her leaves, reminds me of when you and I used our left over dye to print real leaves at your house. Too fun! I hope your thinking of some dying projects for next August, it's your turn, I did last September:)
