Recently I have been playing with using the batting of my pieces to create the textures. I use various lace type fabrics under the photography that has been printed on sheer organza. The examples and details that follow show how this can be an effective way of adding layers and textures when accompanied by additional piecing, layering, and stitching.

For about ten years now, I have been a full-time fiber artist. My subjects reflect a poignant moment of time and my reaction to that moment. This work is a combination of photography; “what” I see, and my handwork; “how” I see. My camera records the facts of the moment while the fabric and stitching add the focus, texture, and emotion to the scene.
