Here’s a little information about my fabric and mixed-media art: I like to capture the moment with bold, saturated colors. To create my art, I use multiple fabrics, free-motion stitching, embroidery, thread painting, applique, beading, collage, dying, painting, needle felting, stamping, and other surface design techniques. My fractal- inspired designs explode into the infinite universe. They also implode to microscopic size. By investigating nature revealing itself in fractal structures, I see that an atom’s design looks similar to a galaxy’s design! After creating fractals on my computer, I re-create them on fabric and use embroidery and beading to enhance the designs.

 

Nature’s dance of life inspires my art as I manipulate hand-dyed and hand-painted fabrics and embellish them to reveal light, movement, and color. My designs encircle, spiral, branch, and wander as they simulate the universe. Underwater creatures writhe and struggle while my invented biological microcosm zooms in on life and its turbulent, irregular, twisting patterns. There is no limit to nature’s inspiration in its amazing layered networks.

For eight years I studied art, design, and fabrics through the Center for Creative Arts in La Conner, Washington, from which I received a diploma in 2014. My master’s degree in Comparative Literature, archaeological field work in the Middle East, extensive travels, and technical communications career stimulated my desire to create art. For several months in 2015, the Verksted Gallery in Poulsbo, Washington, displayed my art.
