New Website and Blog

I just finished creating a new website! Please take a moment to check out my artwork and some of the other features, such as images from the process of putting my works together.

In addition, I now have a blog on my new website, so I will no longer be posting here. Thank you to everyone whom has visited this blog in the past ! I hope you will continue to do so at my new location. Have a wonderful day !

Chinese Watercolor in Fabric

My latest project for class was an attempt to emulate the style of Chinese Watercolorists using fabric. It ended up being a bit more difficult than I had anticipated, but I feel on the whole I was at least partially successful.

The first image, of the koi in the blue background, was my first attempt. Normally I do not dye my own fabrics, but this project was an exception. However, in this case, I think the water is a bit much so I dyed only the fish on the second try.

Waken the Giants (revised)

Here is an updated version of the "Waken the Giants" image I posted a while back. I changed the color of a few of the pieces of fabric on the cub and added a layer of tulle (netting) to the tree to separate it a bit more from the lion.

Kestrel Picture

This is a new picture I finished a week or so ago for Illustration class. It was by far the hardest picture I have attempted to create out of fabric. It contains well over 750 pieces, and stretches 41"x18". This particular image is extra-special to me because the bird is actually my namesake.

Pumpkin Kitty

This is my newest fabric picture. It was for Applejack Art Partners to be printed as a decorative flag for the fall holidays. The image itself is about 17.5"x25" and has appx. 220 pieces of fabric.
