The Holidays are Here!  November 2018 Blog

       A few years ago I moved to Winnsboro and spend my wonderful days creating one of a kind, amazing art. The holidays are coming so I have created some pieces with prices accessible to most people. I hope you have a delightful holiday season where you are all safe and surrounded by loved ones.

Until I update my Website in the next month, you can catch me and some beautiful samples of my design work, present and past,

The Art Scarf

From my fiber-textured apparel line, I found myself housing a great number of scraps and decided each one was a silk brush stroke, so I figured out unique ways to make something useful out of the textured fibers pieces, each uniquely dyed. What I've come up with is the Art Scarf.  The Art Scarf is a bunch of silk scraps cut into leaf shapes and stitched down to a strip of fabric. It looks kind of like a silk boa. People are loving them! Buyers should know, before making the purchase, to please take into consideration these are shredded and cut fabric pieces, and may continue to shred on the edges; however, it's truly an interactive work of art and an outstanding eye catcher for most any occasion.

Splash Necklace

Another adaptation as the scraps as wearable paintings is the Splash Necklace. I take long torn scraps and twist them around each other, until I have two or three different colored strands plied together. Then I tie thin strips of other scraps in square knots around the plied necklace. Then I add beads, charms, buttons, and shells. Each one is unique. They are selling very well, and people really enjoy them.



 Skyscraper Scarf

My silk inventory stocking company came up with a new silk weave that I absolutely adore! 
I explored a technique of washing fabric pieces and hemming it, then dragging a paint brush lightly over the raised part of the silk, the fabric takes on a very interesting color effect with blends and shades. I call it the Skyscraper Scarf, because it looks like the sunlight reflecting off the windows of a downtown skyscraper.

Bent Wire Sculptures

for the love of dance
hands fly away

sometimes my hands fly away with me

The sculptures above are some that I made during the Bent Wire Sculpture workshop I teach at the Creative Arts Center Dallas.
Join me at the next class I am teaching.....

Bent Wire Sculpture
Bent wire sculpture is figure drawing in space. Learn to draw the human figure with wire that is easily bendable (we will create animals, too). No gluing or welding required. Start with a straight line and use your imagination to create figures that dance, fly, sit, embrace. Whatever you can imagine you can “draw”. Anything you want to weave into your sculpture (beads, bits of drift wood, feathers) will be provided along with the wire and tools.
