Marion Barnett sent me one of her books, a great resource for fiber artists.

ZI’ve just recently received a book from the talented UK fiber artist Marion Marnett. It is about a product calledย  Lutradur .

It seemsย  relatively unknown here in the states, certainly seems to be used infrequently. In any case, I’ve notย  heard about it, until readingย  Marion’s Face Book page .https://www.facebook.com/marion.barnett]. She is enthusiastic and that enthusiasm is catchy.ย  Marion uses it extensively in much of her beautifulย  work. The fact that she’s written a whole book about it, leads me to believe this is a great product. She has stirred my curiosity. I thought it might interest you as well.

Marion’s book’s is entitled ” Lovely Lutradur” by Marion Barnett & Dijanne Cevaal. In her book she explains what it is, its properties &ย  it’s application. She has included projects and a gallery, which give examples of what this product can add to your work.

Ifย  you are already familiar with Lutradurย  [hence providing me an example of the value ofย  thorough research, driving home this lesson,” to avoid embarrassment, check the facts thoroughly” ].ย  share your experience with us please.

I’m dying to try it in myself. I’ll update you on my results. In the meantime, checkย  out the interview I did with Marion back in November http://asianartandquilts.com/2012/11/06/textile-art-that-doesnt-follow-the-rules-meet-artist-marion-barnett/

About Myself & My Approach Art has always played a role in my life, in one form or another. 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 was completely out of place, I tried to go unnoticed, a mute fly on the wall, with a big smile pasted on my face. I've continued to paint most of my life. After a move to Oregon years later, I was introduced to quilting and fell in love. 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. There are often many changes and adjustments along the way. The result can often be surprizing. My approach is an instinctual one. Generally, I do little pre-planning. I make creative decisions, choices, directions as they present themselves. This approach can lead to quite a few changes in the direction. I love that element of surprize! Sometimes I have one that I especially like, I can't wait to show someone. At that moment l 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. Iโ€™ve had some of my work published in several magazines. which is exciting. But the most gratifying thing is having clients be really happy with their purchased art quilt.
