I call these "book-ends." They are made out of old encyclopaedia book covers that had nice printed marble papers on the inside. I have been inspired by Lesley Riley's work and after taking a class with her, I found my way into using transfer techniques on paper and fabrics. I also print many of the pictures and quotes directly onto fabric that I run through my inkjet printer. I especially enjoy using vintage pictures, labels, game pieces, buttons,
a teacher, friend, wife, mother, flower gardener, creator.
my art evolves from functional but appealing fragments labels, stamps, postcards, letters, old photographs, magazine images
i collect too much, but find love in aging colors and designs, symmetry rules my layout, despite my desire to be more abstract
a magnet that always wants to point north
most of the time
i just give in.
