Edge of Winter

lovely news- I received Honorable Mention for my work- Edge of Winter at the New Hampshire Art Association, Lincoln Levy Gallery, in Portsmouth! 


This is especially exciting as it is a photograghy exhibit! My work crosses medium's in this regard.
Photograph was slightly manipulated for contrast and printed on digitally prepared textured molding paste. I use inkAid's digital grounds. In this case, it was a combination of clear #2 and pearl. The printed photo was cut into segments and mounted, with variegated pearl cotton, on black dyed wool, both for color and contrasting matt wool’s appearance.  Further collage elements were added.

Dinner at Eight in Houston- Fond Farewell!


     I have been lucky enough to participated in all but 2 of these wonderfully curated exhibits at the International Quilt Festival since 2009. Jamie Fingal and Leslie Tucker Jenison are the women behind the curtain. They have come up with different themes for each year's exhibit and host a lovely dinner for those who can attend.
     This year is the The Best of Dinner at Eight Artists: Celebrating 10 Years of Exhibitions. Each artist selected a theme from the last 9 years for the final exhibition. Quilt size must conform to 30” wide by 50” high.

     My piece, Layers of Meaning, draws on Personal Iconography! It is constructed from an under collage with a digital photograph I created, printed on digital ready silk organza, as an overlay.
looking under
Inspiration- art as a journey; symbolized in a layered manipulated image of a lone boat crossing a lake, a Queen Anne’s lace blossom and painted fabrics for color. This is printed on silk organza that floats, like the boat and seeds in the air, to be caught, perchance to land. 
The boat is the heart of the piece while the shoots of the flower direct the creative energy beyond and outward
This journey is taken together, with like-minded artists, a kinship of art making. This confirmation, this encouragement, has the power of affirmation. Mark making, exploring, taking me beyond my edges, an excursion, causing much consideration to create works that reflect not only a current theme but also my own personal symbolism. Layers of Meaning.

Construct
Multi-layered collage of molding paste, paint, teabags liners, text, string and found items was created on a substrate. This was quilted.  A layered manipulated image, printed on silk organza, floats above, beckoning closer inspection. Hand and machine stitched.

Materials -interfacing, batting, molding paste, paint, tissue paper, recycled tea bag liners, text, string, gesso and specialty mediums, and digitally prepared silk organza.

Painting Thread


Can I color my own thread?
what if?




I used some found thread at thrift store about the same weight as pearl cotton #5.







I placed a long piece of thread into a recycled veggie tray and poured in some Dyna-Flow liquid textile paint
It Worked!!

pages

if we take the time, we might hear it, the inner most dreams of the self, 
the person we are meant to be.

 The morning tide comes to wash away yesterday and leave a new day to begin.

and when the rain comes, I shall find a book and listen to soft words

wandering thru pages

walking faster 
trying to stay ahead of the chaos
upset, she wanders looking for peace that only she can give herself
Thinking out loud again hearing, as if for the first time, her plans gone awry

Journal pages take me inside

stopping, pause, having some time, I turn toward memories of you.
sometimes it just happens
Looking through some old journals, I pause.


singing in pieces 
falling by my side
I wonder out loud on paper

 I'm selling some unique and funky art journals on Etsy-

Fiber Arts in the Digital Age
Wisconsin Quilt Museum

September 27, 2018 - January 13, 2019
Living in the digital age means living in a time where we are increasingly able to do what was previously considered unimaginable. This era has touched every aspect of life and fiber art has been no exception. To artists designing their work via software to the benefits of digitally printing textiles this exhibit explores various fiber art pieces that only exist due to the age we live in.
