Note: Each photo is followed by several detail photos of the artwork. This series of work is created by first gelatin-monoprinting fabrics with various types of acrylic and textile paints; usually in light blues, grays, and some beiges and rust colors for accents. Then I add layers of patterns and texture using oil sticks and rubbing plates. I cut and tear the resulting fabrics and lay them on batting and sew the panels down. Then I add more texture rubbings, blendings, and some sheer fabrics to unite all panels. Lastly, I design the foreground elements and machine and hand sew.
