I'm getting ready for this month's 1st Friday venue and her are a few of the small works that I have created or re-purposed for this event. Below is a piece that I created in 2007 and only showed once, but love the piece nevertheless. This piece is created with my hand dyed cotton, commercial cottons, and batik. It was raw-edged appliqued, fused appliqued, and embellished with glass beads and sequences. Sewn to a wrapped canvas that measure 18 x 24 and is ready for hanging.
The Wave below is a piece that I whole cloth quilted and then cut and reassembled. This piece was created with Indonesian batik cotton and sewn to a 18 x 24 wrapped canvas and is ready for hanging. On 1st Friday I will be a guest artist at the studio of resented artist Patricia Whalen Keck at the Contemporary Art Center of Peoria.
I am so very grateful for the opportunity to be in this space and I am pulling out all of the stops and I am including my wearables as well.
