This piece took two weeks to complete and I used cotton fabrics with fusibles. When I see this piece on my wall, it looks like it was made with clay. I can see what appears to be finger trails and marks. This image is leading me to a different type of art. It looks like a sculpture. The colors that were chosen were ony 12. original photo that I used This palette will be used again in another image, so check my page often.

Marvin Gaye 26 1/2″ x 28″

The image you are looking at is made from cotton fabric! No paint was used even though it looks just like a painting. To begin the process, a photo was scanned into the computer, a pattern was created, batik and hand dyed fabrics were selected and fused onto a lightweight tricot using a mini iron.

The process took about 200 hours due to the larger size and sometimes the pieces are so little (1/4″) it can fit on you fingernail with plenty of room to see your nail! Stand away from computer for full effect. It is protected with acrylic spray and UV applied to prevent fading from sunlight.

The fabric selections seems to be the key in obtaining the painted look, even though I like to think that I have a little talent! Have a photo? Personal commissions welcomed.

Kennedy Brothers “Whispering”

Kennedy Brothers “Whispering”
This piece shows the Kennedy brothers whispering measures 21 x 17 1/4. What do you think they are discussing? This picture is so endearing. Again, I have used my usual batik, hand dyed and commercial cotton fabrics to complete this image. You can actually see their neck ties in the photo. You may need to sit back away from your computer to see it better. It reminds me a little of abstract art. I used twelve different fabrics for the palette. This one strikes a very tender cord in my heart. THIS PIECE RECEIVED A FINE ARTS AWARD AT BOULER CITY’S 23RD ANNUAL FINE ARTS FESTIVAL ON APRIL 19 AND 20 IN BOULDER CITY, NEVADA!!!!! This was my first Fine Arts Festival and I am so proud to have share the common ground with more than 100 other wonderful Artists from 7 southwestern states.

The process takes 80-100 hours for a size 15″x22″ and sometimes the pieces are so little (1/4″) it can fit on you fingernail with plenty of room to see your nail!
