Tree Rings

Sept 17-21, 2024

Combine unique fabrics into round-ish blocks using raw edge applique to represent the growth of nature’s grandest marvels. Embellish and add detail with thread and your imagination. Finish by combining the blocks into a unique completed artwork roughly 30” x 40”. This workshop emphasizes the process of letting your creativity flow freely and provides support as your one-of-a-kind design comes to light.

Artist’s Statement: Through the exploration of cloth as my medium of choice, abstraction, shape and use of color are the primary components repeated through the work. My approach is improvisational and organic, and I am most often stimulated by spirituality, nature, and world events. The beginning of a composition varies from a vague idea to a detailed sketch with a selected color pallet. Rarely does a finished piece completely resemble the initial idea, as I respond to the work as the composition develops. The creative process is the exciting part pushing me to present a unique worldview.
