“Ananda at Last”
Silly name for for this quilt, but this Sanskrit word means “Bliss” and for me my life has finally found peace. The last two years have been of self growth, strength and even self identity. I’ve learned that our paths in life can be a little dark and scary at times, but if we continue on with hope, we can always find the light the guides and the beauty in the process. My body of work now represents this growth and acknowledgment of embracing and living in the moment! Trusting in God, Loving yourself, and shinning your light to help be a guide for others.
This art quilt and two others have been accepted and will be on display at the International Quilt Show in Houston Tx Nov 1 – Nov 5th, 2017. Please feel free to contact me. My new website will be up and working soon.
I graduated with a major in Fine Arts degree from NSU in Aberdeen, but my passion for learning has been a continual process as I have taken classes in design, dye, fabric surface design and many ongoing classes over the past 10 years. I have been eclectic in my approach to my Fiber Art with the love of learning and trying out many variable techniques as you will see with my older pieces. This year you will see a shift, as I am finally beginning to have a vision of where my art will take me. I am very excited, for this new concept has not been used in the Fiber Art or Art Quilt world thus far. This new approach begins with my love of thickened dyes and batik layered dyes as the background piece and then adding the variances of scraps of color fused on top to create colorful and textural pieces of art.
