Title: Rushmore
Artist's Statement:
Mount Rushmore is the background for this quilt which was part of the "Skylines" project challenge by two textile art group.  In the foreground are local wildlife, and flora, including white-tailed deer and a prairie dog.
Rushmore is made using commercial fabrics and photo transfer, along with decorative threads and hand embroidery

 

Title: Peacock, NFS
Artist's Statement:
I had a hard time deciding what to do for the 'radial symmetry' concept of this challenge until I saw a neighbor's peacock disappearing in the bushes alongside the road. This piece is 9 x 11 1/2 inches. The background is hand dyed fabric, and other fabrics are both hand painted and commercial. This peacock is bejeweled with sequins and beads, as well as thread painting. The black outlines and feather stems are heavy black "Levi" thread.

Title:   Devil's Tower,  SOLD
Artist's Statement:  
I chose to make Devil's tower as it is a prominent feature in my state and there is so much texture in it.  I used yellow-orange, red-violet, and blue-green for the triad color concept.  The blue-green is in the vegetation.  The buffalo were hand felted.

Title: Grizzly

Artist's Statement: My art is influenced by the things I see, feel and experience living in the northwest corner of Wyoming, close to Yellowstone National Park. In Grizzly, thread-painting was used to depict the bears which are a part of the Park vista and experience. The scene is early winter and the animals are looking for the last berries before hibernating.
Thread-painting and quilting was done with a variety of shades of Sulky and Mettler threads on batik. Highlights include Derwent Intense pencils for shading, HotFix crystals, and wood beads.

Title: MONARCH
Artist's Statement: 
I have been wanting to learn pieced S-curves, and this challenge gave me the push I needed. "Monarch" is 22" x 22". Yellow-orange commercial fabrics are used with split-complementary colors of red-violet and blue, in various hues.  The background is curved piecing, and the butterfly is set-into the background (more curved piecing), instead of appliqué.

 Title: Waiting for Spring

Artist's Statement: The lone wolf waiting for spring was made for a “Down By the Riverside” SewBatik challenge. The wolf is thread painted.

 

Title: Moon Song, SOLD
Artist's Statement: 
Many of my quilts portray the west and southwest, as I love the openness of the area.  Moon Song measures 22" x 26" and is made from commercial fabrics.  The cactus is tucked for added dimension.  Sparkle tulle is layered over the sand.  The moon is beaded, as well as around the inner border. 

Title: Yosemite Sheep

Artist's Statement: A quilt depicting Yosemite National Park fauna is in the "Inspired by the National Parks" exhibit touring the U.S. 2015 thru 2017. This exhibit was at the International Quilt Festival in Houston in 2015, followed by shows in 2016 in California, and Virginia. The quilts will continue to travel in 2016 and 2017 to additional venues in Washington, Ohio, Illinois, Oklahoma, Indiana, Virginia, Utah, Illinois and Nevada. These quilts are in the book Inspired by the National Parks: Landscapes and Wildlife in Fabric Perspectives, available from Amazon.
