Layers of Meaning
A solitary boat slides across a bloom of Queen Ann’s Lace viva a hand created digital photo. The boat is the heart of the piece while the shoots of the flower direct the creative energy beyond and outward.
This is a 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.

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. 30x50

Photography has spoken to me for decades. When I was able to use my photography to create digital fiber works, my work exploded. Presently, I either manipulate images using a variety of digital tools or create unique substrates to print on or over-lay which influences the final image in a physical way.
Interfacing, batting, molding paste, paint, tissue paper, recycled tea bag liners, text, string, gesso and specialty mediums, and digitally prepared silk organza.
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. 30x50
