Morning Flight

Morning Flight: 11 X 19 This collage panel is just a backdrop to show off my beaded butterflies. I have use many elements like hand painted fabrics, yarns, angelina fibers, and a lot of free motion stitching using metallic and varigated threads for dimension. Ribbons are incorporated to dramatize the implied directional motion. The colorful blue green background spotlights the orange and yellow elements. I used polymer clay to make the sun figure, suggesting morning. Lots of sparkle in this one. Click on image for closer look.

Kansas Beauty

Kansas Beauty: 26 X 26 I started out with a center piece of hand dyed fabric for this wall hanging. I was a newby at making art quits and a newby at quilting also. I decided to paint a sunflower on the center block and then, made some dimensional leaves for interest. From there it just grew with colorful borders, embellished with a little sunflower trim. For many years I just hid this away in my closet because I felt like I was out of my element. Then, suddenly I uncovered this and saw it's charm. Now I love this and will put it up for exhibit. #mixedmedia This can be purchased through The Polish Pottery Shoppe 100.00 See more of my work on plus shipping.

Elephant Walk

Elephant Walk: 22 X 24. This is an abstract concept concerning some random musings about the life of an African Elephant. It shows the element of time and movement. We know that elephants need to have water to keep them happy and healthy. So, my elephant may leave one area at sunset and then be at a favorite water hole by sunrise. He congregates with the herd and since he is such a large animal can cover a lot of ground in his journeys. He sees a lot of changes in terrain in his travels. This piece is quite textural.

Santa and His Helpers

Santa and His Helpers: 18 X 20. We can brighten our holiday with this little reminder of Santa and the gang putting up the Christmas tree, after a long day working at the North Pole. The background is put together in the Bohemian Tapestry style, using many fabrics left over from other projects. For Santa and his friends, I looked at a lot of Christmas clip art and picked out a few of the most interesting images. I made patterns from my drawings and fused the fabric choices onto a stabilizer. I have used several layers of free motion stitching on this and finished with a last go round of metallic thread. Sheer sparkle material is used to represent icy patches on the rocks. Click on image to take a closer look at the sheer fabric sparkles.
