There are so many new ways to use photos in art, fiber art in particular. Recently, I posted a series on my Etsy site that uses my photos in a grid/collage format and can also be seen on the Fire Blog.

My explorations for different ways to use my photos in fiber art have taken a few different avenues.  You’ve been seeing my posts to the One Four Challenge, a blog challenge that’s a forum for learning, teaching, sharing and showing our photographs in four post process edits. After my last edit for the month of January, I proceeded to transform that image into a piece of fiber art that I just finished and faced.

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.
