After many years creating landscape art quilts, I realized I love thread so much, I dropped out the fabric. So many of the items you will see in my shop are stitched entirely of thread. Currently my work focuses on exploring what makes fiber art so unique: texture, freedom of shape of the "canvas" (not limited to a rectangle), and employing three rather than two dimensions. Fiber art appeals to me because my hands are always touching my materials; it is a completely tactile experience. My favorite technique is “thread painting”, where I move the fabric freely beneath the needle while machine stitching (being very careful not to stitch a finger!). Think of it as drawing a picture with the pencil held still and moving the paper; something that takes a lot of practice to do well. Thread painting is particularly well-suited to creating animals and foliage, allowing for shading and texture. I have a vast collection of threads, which are my “paintbox”.
