Have you ever wanted to learn the intimidating art of dyeing fabric? I know that if you’re a quilt artist , you probably do, that’s if you ain’t already proficient at it. I am fascinated to learn, intimidated yes, but really want to in the worst way [ I use silk painting on my work, it’s similar,  permanent and gives me the control I want] but I always  feel I’m missing out on something. Well, Diannajessie’blog  http://diannajessie.wordpress.com/2012/10/07/fabric-dyeing-is-there-a-right-time-to-start/#comment-2697 has the answer for you. She has gathered a whole list of references that will provide just the help and confidance to try it. Head on over if you’re feeling that you’re missing out on something too. I’ll see you there.

About Myself & My Approach Art has always played a role in my life, in one form or another. My family is filled with many artist's, so my love of art came naturally. By my teens, I had narrowed my focus to painting. I decided I was going to become a serious painter. I joined the Las Vegas Artist's Guild at 15, the youngest member at that time. I've continued to paint throughout my life. On occasion I've sold my work, but I had more important priorities, I was raising my children, part of that time as a single parent. My circumstances have changed, the kids are grown and I have more time for Art. Art is a form of therapy for me. I was introduced to quilting & fell in love. In time I missed the creative freedom painting made possible. Then I discovered mixed media fiber art, I was home. MY APPROACH TO ART It's the creative process that holds the greatest attraction for me. Starting with a tiny seed of an idea; vague and blurred around the edges, I follow where that leads. My approach is an instinctual one. Generally, I do little pre-planning. I make creative decisions, choices, directions to take as they present themselves. This approach can lead to quite a few changes in the direction the quilt takes. The outcome can come as a surprise. I love that element of surprise! Sometimes everything just comes together & I think to myself, "this is one of my better ones". when that happens, I can’t wait to show someone. I feel like a six year old, running home from school, a drawing in hand, excited to show Mom. At those times. I'm smiling like the Cheshire cat. I’ve had work published in several magazines., which is gratifying. But the most gratifying thing is having clients be really happy with their purchased art quilt.

  1. Thanks for your post Barbara – I’m so glad that sharing useful information helps us all – now I need to get started on dyeing. Maybe the book and e-book will be my first investments:) Have a great week. Dianna


  2. I have been wanting to dye too. I was direct to Dharma on the internet. I am going to try heliographic dyeing since I have an abundance of sunshine where I live and it doesn’t require all the harsh chemicals and is less expensive.
