New Guest Bed Quilt

Augie Marshmallow is enjoying this as yet unquilted log cabin quilt top.


This is an example of integrating fabric into paint.  The texture is literal as well as visual.

The Banquet of Donny & Ari, scenes from the opera

I was the textile consultant on this book-length epic poem by Naomi Guttman which dropped this month.  It’s an examination of a modern marriage between a textile artist and a composer both of whom are concerned about the state of the natural world and dealing with the pressures of modern life on a Montreal family.  Adding to the depth and universal reach of the poem is that Donny and Ari are 21st century incarnations of Dionysus and Ariadne from Greek mythology.  Naomi found me a couple of years ago by means of my website as I do a lot of fiber art about the environment.  I am so lucky to have been involved in this very classy project!

Long Time No Post!

Time has really gotten away from me. Put on a concert for hubby's BIG birthday - 90 guests and lots of chamber music, etc., etc.   How does this happen???  So here's a teaser.  This is apiece I'm donating to Visions Art Museum in San Diego.  They show nothing but textiles and it's a worthy cause.  Stop by and shop if you are in the neighborhood.

This is silk which has been dyed, printed, felted in places and had the addition of water soluble media, foil and lots of french knots.   The piece is called Pink Study for fairly obvious reasons.
