Quilled Stephen King’s Dark Tower

Quilled Stephen King’s Dark Tower

Quilled Stephen King’s Dark Tower Go then, there are other worlds than these What can I say? I’m a Stephen King addict fan. I can’t think of another author that was more influential from any point of my entire life. I have read every single […]

Quilled Broccoli Head

Quilled Broccoli Head

I woke up this morning, the first day of my mini-vacation and I started thinking about how I wanted to create a blog post on my site called “My Life in Paper.” The post would show how almost every piece I create somehow relates back […]

Scovill Zoo Quilled Cheetah Detail Images

Scovill Zoo Quilled Cheetah Detail Images

Have I ever told you that I am borderline obsessive? Well that and a perfectionist too. I think it’s why I like quilling so much. Sometimes I post pieces and I don’t think the details come out in the photos. The Scovill Zoo’s cheetah is […]

Scovill Zoo Quilled Cheetah

Scovill Zoo Quilled Cheetah

A few months ago I was contacted by a woman affiliated with the Scovill Zoo in Decatur, IL. She told me she’d seen my “Hear Me Roar” piece and had looked me up in hopes I might take on a project for the zoo’s August […]

Abstract Hybrid Quilled Flow Art | Red Jupiter

Abstract Hybrid Quilled Flow Art | Red Jupiter

Being the victim of almost continual copying lately, I lost my “groove.” And to get it back in a way that people will find difficult to copy, I’ve been creating hybrid flow art. This is the second in the series and I call it “Red […]

Black Smoker | Abstract Flowing Quilled Artwork

Black Smoker | Abstract Flowing Quilled Artwork

Black Smoker | Abstract Flowing Quilled Artwork is a new piece I created using some innovative multi-media techniques. The original thought was to try combining two of my greatest loves: quilling and flow art. To achieve the effects seen in this piece I had to […]

Hand Painted Contour Quilling

Hand Painted Contour Quilling

I’ve been in a horrible creative slump lately for a number of reasons. Primarily because every time I get on Facebook or Instagram someone has copied my work and not even bothered to drop my name or tag me. It’s been so depressing. I just […]

Quilled Black Heart of Friendship

Quilled Black Heart of Friendship

One of the things you can always count on with me is that most of my art comes directly from my heart. I am constantly inspired by experiences and things I see. In the case of my Quilled Black Heart of Friendship, I was unfortunately […]

Reproductive Self Portrait

Reproductive Self Portrait

I’ve recently developed an obsession with creating anatomical art out of paper. The first one I attempted was the Frog Autopsy and no sooner had I begun it, I knew that this would be next. Now I have created this Quilled Reproductive Self Portrait. I say […]

Quilled Frog Autopsy

Quilled Frog Autopsy

For some reason I am drawn to the macabre. Not that I truly consider my Frog Autopsy piece macabre. In fact, to me it’s as normal as getting up in the morning and having a cup of coffee. I guess being raised on a farm […]

Blue and White Floral Mandala

Blue and White Floral Mandala

If I had it my way, I’d make a mandala every week. Sadly they are time-consuming and require so much time to complete that doing them for pleasure would interfere with the business side of Mainely Quilling. LOL This blue and white floral mandala is […]

Quilled White Horse

Quilled White Horse

My newest creation is this beautiful quilled white horse. I use the term “quilled” loosely, however, as it was actually made almost entirely with a comb (except the mane, that is). I plan to enter my quilled white horse in an art show and I’m hoping […]

Hear Me Roar | Quilled Lion

Hear Me Roar | Quilled Lion

So the first project of 2017 was Hear Me Roar | Quilled Lion! I decided to make this after I cleaned over the holiday break and realized how bare the walls in my living room were. I am a Leo (cusp Virgo) and thought it would […]

Childhood Home Quilling

Childhood Home Quilling

I love to quill gifts for my relatives and this is another of those projects. My childhood home quilling depicts the home I grew up in and the one that my mother still calls home. The house itself is over 200 years old. It’s considered […]

Quilled Blossoming Dryad

Quilled Blossoming Dryad

Quilled Blossoming Dryad Original Artwork by artist Stacy Bettencourt of Mainely Quilling My latest creation!  A quilled blossoming dryad. Or I guess she could also be a Wood Sprite, an Entwife, or any other number of mythical creatures. Let your own imagination decide for you. […]

Quilled Blue Lobster

Quilled Blue Lobster

Quilled Blue Lobster A client was trying to decide between a lobster and an anchor. After sending her some examples I found on the internet, she decided upon a quilled lobster. The one she liked the best was also the one that was the most […]
