Yesterday was a beautiful day in bumper to bumper traffic a good part of the way to the Raddison Hotel in Manchester NH but worth it when you get there.  Although there were gorgeous quilts from all over the world, I’m focusing in on our I Love New England Exhibit.  Not all my pics came out well enough to post but I’ll share with you a few of them today:

This Bird’s Eye View is a machine pieced collage of my digital photographs of New England transferred onto fabric.  I included hand embroidery, text, the names of our many beaches and names of our Native American tribes; commercial fabrics which include some that depict our indigenous berries and appliques of some of our native flowers.

The natural world is phenomenal and so much of the man-made world - our architecture, our cities - are stunning accomplishments. They exist hand in hand in both beautiful expressions and sometimes disastrous manifestations. Our entire existence with the natural and the invented is intertwined – each dependent on the other, even as my art evolves, each breathing in the wake of the other. Surface design is one aspect of the process that I love. I thoroughly enjoy the play with color, value and construct, particularly the improvisation which starts with one thing, an idea, a glimpse of a vision, perhaps something that captures my eye for a moment in time and it grows organically. I become focused on whatever piece I'm working on and follow my muse to find my way.
