Nora works from her studio home in Granville, Ohio creating fine art watercolor paintings and intricate, elegant cross-stitch patterns. Moving from sketch to painting to cross-stitch pattern, Nora builds on her already amazing collection of designs.
The subjects of Nora’s Mirabilia designs are timeless women in escapist, romantic settings – allowing the person who buys and completes her cross-stitch patterns the same level of involvement that a great romance novelist creates for the reader. The designs are sophisticated and creative with a penchant for angels, queens, fairies, mothers, lovers and other embodiments of the graceful woman. The births of her sons also inspired a line entitled Little Stitches depicting various aspects of a child’s most cherished years.
