Green is my favorite color but these Moroccan photos I took made me fall for blue. Can't wait to see them on fabric!
My Studio Neighbors Inspire me
Becca Kacanda is my new neighbor at the studios of Tinsel Gallery at 10th and Mitchell. Here's her website and she sells her work on etsy and at local galleries. https://www.rottogrotto.com/ And Mary Louise Schumacher featured her in her Art City email recently. https://mail.google.com/mail/u/0/#search/art+city/FMfcgxvzLhgKVjNWtkJcXKtQFCCKCPMN
One of My Design Walls
I like to surround myself with other people's work. The blue dress is by Michele Dangelo. Other things include: a bed spring, rusted metal I found on a beach, poems.
I was drawn to taking close-up photos of Vietnamese walls and icons on my recent trip there. I print the photos on silk and paper and then quilt them with batting and backing. Lately I've been embellishing them with a variety of mosses.
Other Things I'm working on
The first piece is part of a Mending Wounds series and features deconstructed fabric held together with tiny mending stitches. Photos of my lips inspired the second piece. My used contact lenses inspired the third.
