The Capone kids came to visit and help. Each time they come from Orange Co. they add something to our landscaping. One year they built the brick patio in the front yard under the old Oak. A perfect place to sit and enjoy the quiet, until a cat leaps on your lap.. This year they helped put electrical in my Gourd studio, and Ralphs little storage building. It is fun having them visit and enjoy the country, a big change from city living. No snakes this visit.
Creating with mixed media textiles, in vivid colors gives Vivian Helena the opportunity to draw from her variety of artistic talents. Fiber art, photography, gourds and jewelry design are some of her passions. Living near Yosemite National Park, and beside the Fresno River, Vivian’s love of nature is evident in all of her art pieces.
Her work is featured in “Showcase 500 Beaded Jewelry”, and “1000 Artisan Textiles”. Vivian teaches at her home studio, and her art work is in Timberline Gallery, and Madera Circle Gallery in California.
