The home of the fiber artist with the attention span of a gnat !! Those who know me say .... "what are you up to now?" As I constantly change my art but the one thing that doesn't change is .. expect the unexpected !!!
I have lots of new items in the works. I am particulary excited about the stained-glass pieces that I am currently working on and the new pieces on metal that I hope to have ready for the March shows. If you have an oppprtunity, come by a show or Art a la Carte Gift Boutique.
I like taking the skills of yesterday and mixing them with the technology of today and my work is the result.
I was a math "geek" when being a "geek" was cool. I have learned how to make kaleidoscopes from a number of skilled craftsmen over the years. So I sit at my computer, open an image (some I create, some already exists flowers, fish anything with good colors). I apply those same mathematical principles to my image and "kaleidoscope" my image. I then save the image and have it printed onto fabric and use that fabric in my artwork.
I also love stained-glass but am very clumsy. So I start with traditional stained-glass patterns but make it with fabric, some work even incorporatess my kaleidoscopes. The results have been mistaken for glass, tile and even clay.
I incorporate the kaleidoscopes into whatever I can ... pins, journals and handbag embellishments as well as suncatchers.
I display different artwork at each venue.
