I am a self taught, mixed media artist, who likes to take the road less travelled. I make exquisite pieces of art from fabric pieces without usually using an iota of paint.
Each piece is made meticulously with fabric and threads introducing shades and tints that make it a perfect complete picture. I have been working on this unique technique for several years and I like to follow the moment without any preconceived ideas. I find my work meditative and thoroughly enjoy both the journey and the final outcome.
When asked how long a piece takes, I wonder how would one measure the time spent in playing with children or praying in the company of a close friend.
