Vivika is taking it all in.  Although she may have less time to work on her fiber art and beautiful bird portraits, DeNegre is excited to begin a new adventure:

“I am thrilled, of course, and also overwhelmed in many ways with the challenges - learning Photoshop, excel and outlook, understanding the publishing world from the inside, working once again after an 11 year retirement - all of these are new experiences.”

New Editor DeNegre is already working on the April/May 2012 issue of Quilting Arts magazine, and will launch her new Quilting Arts blog next month. 

Congratulations Vivika!
