Coming Soon! Textile Art Prints


I’ve been working on something new for Musical Color Studio– art prints (on paper) of my textile art (dyed or painted fabric work).

…So instead of selling a textile wall hanging, for hundreds of dollars, I can make open-edition prints of details from the fabric itself (for a much lower cost, of course!)

The prints look very similar to the fabric originals, with the warp and weft texture of the fabric and the rich colors of the dyes, so when they are hanging in a frame, it just looks like a framed piece of textile art! What do you think? (I’ll post again once they are available in my shop!)

Fiber Art, Pt. II

More fiber art inspiration!

This time, I’ve included some of my own stitched fibers on watercolor paintings, and there’s also a silk painting, a fabric staircase installation, woven textiles, some beaded feet/socks (?), and an embroidered leaf… Enjoy!

Inspiration ranging from embroidered plastic bags or scissor handles to thread sculptures to shibori to sculptural fabric in the shape of a dress… Fiber art never fails to impress.
