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. 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. I’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.
