If you are following the progress of this art quilt in the making, I’m posting photos of its progression. This is a time-lapse of photos, following this piece of fiber art take shape and become a real piece of art. A few photos along the way, it is a mixed media work, so I used some non quilty methods. I paint the fabric, paint on the picture. i use fabric paint dyes, fabric markers whatever I need to get the look I am going for. Then in this case I will cover a great deal of that with the thread painting.

Last post I showed you the outcome of layers of color to get the depth. The stylized hollyhocks hadn’t assumed their final form, they needed thread painting to give them their last few touches of texture and detail.

I’ve completed one, that’s it. Ten more to go. Thread painting is labor intensive and takes time. Here is my one hollyhock with wee bit of the stock included that fell within the area of the hoop. Now ..on to the next ten.

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.
