I discovered the great beauty in Nature, is such an amazing gallery of colors and shapes and I am taking those and capturing them in fabric in my collection called FabricArt Botanicals . This collection will be showcased along with other Local Artists , Photographers and Mixed Media in the U.S. Wildlife Visitor Center on Roanoke Island, North Carolina. The opening reception is February 12, 2016 5:00 to 8:00 PM.

I hope if you find yourself in the area that you will stop in to see the exhibit as well as enjoy the diverse collection of information about the Alligator River Wildlife Refuge and the educational opportunities to learn about the Red Wolves , Bears and birds found in the refuge.
