Fiber Art Office Installations

This 3 piece office installation is titled "Reflections". It hangs in the waiting room of Sharon Colwell APRN, BC at 999 Oronoque Lane, Stratford, CT. The goal was to create a peaceful feeling while retaining a gender neutral design. 

I hand painted the fabrics using cotton for the main panels and hand dyed silk for the brown squares and cream colored strips. Lastly I created a leaf stamp choosing gold ink to tie in all the other colors. The leaves and quilting help define movement in the pieces.  


The above piece is titled, "Painted Ladies" and hangs in Ms. Colwell's inner office. I desigend this piece using hand dyed fabrics for the center panel and geraniums. I created a geranium pattern from a photograph I took of the geraniums in my garden. The border fabric was developed with the discharge method. I scattered buttons onto black cotton and sprayed the cloth with bleach and water. This created the unusual look of a black and tan design.

If you know of a space that needs a customized look please feel free to contact me and we'll come up with a one of a kind piece just for you!
