Welcome to D'arbo's Page

"D'arbo Licky-Dog Buddha-Belly Bovill" was a Weimaraner/Black Lab Mix who was as sweet as could be. She was well-traveled, living in Virginia, New York, and Missouri, and loved having an active lifestyle. Her interests included hiking, swimming, playing fetch, as well as "keeping things real" in the studio! In the seven wonderful years we spent with her, she influenced a great deal of my work, especially the 32 page illustrated picture book all about her. In fact, I started working with textiles right when we adopted her, and it was actually working on her book, "Queen D'arbo," that made me realize just how much I loved fabric, hand-stitching, and collage.


To honor her memory, I have gathered pictures of her many grand adventures.
