Textile Art: Inspired By Nature ~ Created By Hand

Fabric has been woven into my life for as long as I can remember. As a self-taught artist, the design techniques I use are my own-driven by what works best for me and what I'm aiming to accomplish. Whether I'm manipulating fabric or painting on it using Derwent Inktense Ink Blocks, bringing a tired, vintage, antique or repurposed piece back to "life" is my passion. When others see trash I see many treasures.Gleaning my inspiration from God's handiwork and my son's award-winning photos, I look at a bird or animal and I ponder its fabric creation..and so the process begins. My art is not traditional or "set in stone" because the materials and techniques I use are hard to duplicate. Each piece is unique in its own composition, design, and inspiration. I think what people like most is that they can hold a little piece of history, unique artistry and their own story altogether in one rare, but perfect creation.
