Six years ago I moved from Wisconsin to Charlottesville. I live on one end of the mall and daily walk to my studio at the other end in the McGuffey Art Center. The mall is my “backyard” and I love the people, the bustle, and the changing seasons. I have taken hundreds of photos and a few of them go on to become the basis for my fiber art pieces.
The photos are printed on fabric, other fibers and fabrics are added, and then hand and machine stitching give them the 3-d textures that are not in the photography.
