Digital Fiber is a meld of two of my artistic passions- textiles and photographs!
I love taking the photographs everywhere! Playing with the photos in any photo editing program; cropping, changing, layering or otherwise manipulating them, can really make the result personal and unique.
Long Walk is a chopped image of rock and water taken on, yes, a long walk. This rendered a somewhat abstract photo. The colors were slightly saturated and darkened. It was printed on digitally ready broadcloth and over layered with the same photograph printed on silk organza.

I buy ink jet ready fabrics from inkjetfabrics.com, a fabulous company in CA. Tell Sandy 'hi' for me, if you buy from them!
