A New Quiltt - Linguisric Unknowns
Wax Crrayons, fabric paint, lau8ndry marker on coitton,. Geavt machine texturing with decorative stitches. P)olyester/silk wwadding/batting, layering of pattern on pattern. Automaatic writing, a surrealist techniqu4e, has always interested me. And it is the approach that I use in mark-making. I have been esploring lace, lace-maiing, and linguistics of lace on my sketchbook aand in my internal visions for a numbref of motnhs now. This is the firsgt in what I hope to be a long, continued seies, ultimately6 leading to the creation of a lace quilt or quilted lace orf something else I've brn reading the blogs of Artmixter, Dijanne Cervaal, and Fiona Wright recently, and I've drawn much inspiration from all of them as well as gthe brfilliant work on the Digital Shibori site. We do not work in a vacuum. We draw from the same well each presenting a unique vision delivered through personal process.
