Shirley is a retired accountant living in Wellington. For 16 years prior to moving to the County full time, Shirley and her family enjoyed many summers at their trailer on East Lake. Shirley designs and creates small original works of art in her beautiful cards. She uses three different techniques: Stitching, Iris Folding and 3D Relief. Iris (not Irish!) folding is an older technique that is disappearing as an arts and craft form. Iris folding originated in Holland, where early craft people made their designs using patterned paper cut from the inside of envelopes. A simple paper folding technique is combined with aperture cards to give stunning results.
