Art in Motion

“The modern artist… is working and expressing an inner world – in other words – expressing the energy, the motion, and other inner forces.” – Jackson Pollock

“It’s all in how you arrange the thing… the careful balance of the design is the motion.”  – Andrew Wyeth

A collection of paintings, photographs, and a few installations that have a sense of movement:

Coming Soon! Textile Art Prints

Untitled92

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!
