textiles and thread - creating fine art collages
I am inspired by the beauty around me. Lines that flow from one point to the next create designs and interesting shapes. The colors, textures, and contrasting shades are always drawing me in. Fabric has so many of these qualities that using it in my work has given me more freedom of expression. Many of my pieces are a form of an "art quilt" using just fabric and thread; creating a piece of work that looks much like a painting. Other pieces are a mixed media of tissue paper, fabric, and paint. Both processes capture my creative soul.
