Tangled

Deconstructed screen print using Procion dyes on cotton and densely machine stitched.

We often hear of all the pollution in our seas and oceans. So much of is a tangled web endangering precious sea life. This piece is an abstracted interpretation of the tangled webs that are woven in our waters.



Summer Winds

Screen printed with Procion dyes on cotton and densely machine stitched, Summer Winds is inspired by living along the coastline and watching as summer winds blow into fall.

This textile piece debuted in Rīga, Latvia in the Rīgas Tekstilmozaīka 2016 Exhibit at the Castle of Culture, Ziemeļblāzma.



Heartland #1

Deconstructed screen printing, dense machine stitching.

Inspired by flying over America’s heartland, I was enamored with the many patterns and designs and how they vary from state to state.

Deconstructed-screen printing, dense machine stitching.

31″ x 31″

Another abstracted aerial view of America’s heartland. Some fields have been tilled, others not. Varied colors and patterns everywhere.



Tranquil Waters

Handprinted with Procion dyes on cotton and densely machine stitched.

This piece is inspired by the ocean, seaweeds and sea grasses. These are two of my favorite colors–I never tire of them!

 



Aerial Mapping

Deconstructed-screen printing using Procion dyes on cotton and finished with dense machine stitching.

16″ x 18 1/2″

For months after a particular flight to the midwest I was taken with the compositions I saw from the air. I began making additional compositions using satellite maps as inspiration. This piece is an abstracted take on an aerial composition.



Splish Splash

Dye-painted and screened with dense machine stitching.

16 3/4″  x 31 3/4″  (framed)

A playful take on life. The title reflects a splash of this color and a splash of that color and enjoying the serendipitous outcomes of the blending of colors as they nestle alongside each other.



CONFLUENCE I

Hand-dyed with Procion dyes on cotton with dense machine stitching.

16 3/4″ x 31 3/4″

This piece began with a “go with the flow” mentality, that is–go where the colors lead me. What evolved was a converging of waterways denoted by the dense machine stitching.
