Vinniey's design style is most influenced by the world around her. She love doodling garden, colorful flowers, herbs, and fruit trees. Her designs are often inspired by music and anything she sees that she likes, whether it is a word, sight, sound, mug, photo, antique, or her daughters' handwriting and doodling. Her designs often take the elements of the primitive style ~ alphabets, flowers, and small motifs arranged in a sampler format. She stitches all of her own models and improvises colors and details in the process. Most of her charts for Cottage Garden Samplings are in easy-to-read symbols.
