History

I have started my business to meet the demand for accounting assistance. Research shows that small businesses are the backbone of our economy and there is a steady growth. During a down economy small start up businesses flourish. The Small business owner’s do not want the hassle nor have the expertise to be their own CFO. At the same time one reason they fail is lack of controlling their Finances including cash flow and receivables. In order survive and not be a statistic they will need an Accountant they can trust and rely on to teach them and help them learn how to control their cash flow and receivables for that reason my 30+ years of experience with the accounting world is needed. As the owner of a start up business of my own I have the passion, dedication and enthusiasm to succeed. And that trait will allow me more flexible, resourceful and stimulated in helping my clients also to succeed.

Georgie Cline - The Artist

My work combines my passion for Photography, painting, the Great Outdoors and have course fabric. A camera has been a part of my life from a very young age and now to combine it with my fiber work has created for some long walks and new adventures. On any given day nature can be a beautiful flower, fallen trees, water that can be blue one day or brown and mucky another, spring or fall, morning to evening giving a complete new look for the same area. Nature holds a complete and unending supply of color, texture, lines and design allowing the viewer to observe and take in the never-ending beauty. Then man has come along and added their touch. As the Cement barrier in this piece are used to add art work in the form of Graffiti.  Somehow man and nature has come together and become one.

 

I begin each piece by dyeing and over dying the fabric to be used. Then I prepare what I call my canvas, a piece of cotton fabric covered with a layer of wonder under.  I begin to layer on pieces of fabric of a variety of sizes and shapes as though I am painting.  One or two layers of tulle is placed on top to added depth. The water, rapids and water reflections are done with silk organza and cotton yard. Machine and hand sewing are used in the construction.
