From thermofax to collage

New work from hand-dyed, hand-printed fabrics. 
Some are vintage linen, others bits from projects past.

I collage these into new compositions, then mount them on 4x6 inch boards. 
They stand nicely, so you can put them on a wall, shelf 
or beside your computer.

Find them at the Winter Lights exhibit, Loading Dock Gallery, through December.
Or join me upstairs in studio 512, during Holiday Open Studios, this weekend.

Printing: Thermofax days

On my feet, printing for the hours. 
Sewing machine as drying rack

Every surface draped with drying fabric. 
Ideas percolating, time passing. Music playing. 

Waiting in the wings

Fabrics are intended for a series on 
following one's dreams, inspired by the 
Thoreau quote about marching 
to a different drummer.

New lace screen on hand-dyed fabric

Today I begin the work of cutting, blending, and rearranging.

Five layers. Four years. Finished.
Work and play, intertwined.
