I’m juggling a bunch of projects at the moment.  I don’t even know how many art quilts I have in process right now – a bunch – and some mixed media pieces  as well.  Taking and processing photos is ongoing and I’m playing with how I can make those photos work in my fiber art.  Of course, as usual, I’m waiting for more products to arrive: InkAID and more fabric (silk, cotton and organza) to print on are on the way.

Here are two of the current quilts I’m working on in close to finish up stages.  This first one came out of playing with developing some new designs a week or so ago and here I’m using string to audition a FMQ pattern.

WIP with FMQ layout.web.

This is the second from this design in which I’m also incorporating photos on fabric into the mix, along with some shibori and sun printed fabric and some printed with my hand carvings.

Thanks for stopping by!

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.
