Australia Wide 4

I was lucky to have my piece, Gyres 6, juried into this touring exhibition.    The show will take place in multiple venues throughout Australia through 2016.   Ice dyed cotton and upcycled household plastics comprise the work.



This yard square piece of art cloth is a silk/cotton blend I painted with thickened dyes.  California is experiencing prolonged drought in recent years and flames burn through tree trunk terribly rapidly.   Bits of ash fly here and there.

Coffee Anyone?

This is the next module for Chroma: Brown.  I dyed these bamboo filters and am delighted with how fabulously they came out.  So much texture and interesting colors.  They are very "palm tree-y" which suggests all kind of interesting possibilities down the line.
