1st Friday June 5th

Greetings All,
Below is a piece that I created a while back and never showed it and got the inspiration to re-create it and mount it on plexi-glass.  The piece is titled the Gate-I and it is a part of a series and when I decided to mount it it's orientation needed to be changed.  Have you ever changed the orientation of a piece?  I love the re-created version even more.  This is hand painted fabric that was fused and whole cloth quilted, cut and satin stitched then assembled.  The bottom photo is the new and improved piece.  This piece will make it's debut on 1st Friday at the resident artist studio of Pat Keck at the Contemporary Art Center in Peoria, IL on the 3rd floor in the studio area, June 5th from 5 pm to 9 pm.

Wearable update.

Greetings All,
I have been working of several project for friend that are about garments and it has been interesting to me.  One friend had a 3-piece suit that she wanted to become a tunic and skirt.  I took the jacket and the blouse and created what I think is a lovely tunic that can be worn with the skirt or leggings.  I love the asymmetric lines of the tunic and the v-neck line.  I do believe that this is just the beginning of a new creation for me.  Love the color.

Front view, detail view, and back view.

Judith Koren Shanahan had this lovely linen with machine embroidery and wanted a coat and here's what became of that.  I created a collarless, dolmen sleeve, patch pocket coat that we both love.  Below is a photo of Judith in her studio Atelier 5835 N. Galena Road Peoria, IL.  I just love her for her friendship/support, also I love the coat.

Greetings All,
Here are some images of my latest mix media piece that include stoneware and fabrics.  The titles are "Spirit Keepers".  The stoneware has been embossed with lace, stained, and glazed.  Artist hand painted shibori cotton, African prints, burlap, commercial cottons, and copper mesh.  The effigies are quilted and tied to the fringes. There are buttons, cowrie shells, and bead embellishments.  I also used jute and cotton cording.
