Stained glass windows, decorative building motifs, and even aerial views of urban cities inspire this custom framed, decorative fiber art series. Each piece is a collage of synthetic fabrics with metallic foiling, melting, and washes of paint transferred by heat-activated processes. The substrata are recycled felt that was once the packaging material for a kayak being shipped from a distributor to a retail outlet. Historical periods and distant cultures are tied together through free machine stitching. Each piece is a unique, one-of-a-kind creation made solely by the artist.
