New Art Cloth Blog

I just created a new little blog with my art cloth. Check it out at There are lots of groovy visuals. No quilting, no embellishing, just dyeing, printing, painting and foiling on a single piece of fabric.

Closer Than You Think

I've been working on some experiments to see if I can make a coherent piece using modules or cells in the style of Chuck Close. The first few were not very successful, but this one works for me. The next one will have much larger modules but I'm going to continue using the screen armature as I can warp it slightly which adds the magic carpet element.

Both of these pieces were done with the poorly understood embellisher/needle felting machine. Join me March 3 from 10-4 in my Palos Verdes studio to learn more about your dry felting machine than you thought possible. $65 if you bring your own machine; lunch included. Email me to sign up or if you have questions:

Blue Cloth

In spite of all the prep for various shows and shepherding the one in Redondo Beach, I have had some studio time. Been dyeing up a storm. Here's a piece I over-dyed three times using Presist for underlying patterning. I'm actually thinking of cutting into it, doing some stitching and turning it into a quilt. Haven't quite decided yet. What do you think???
