Day 2, Art Challenge

Today is day 2 of the Art Challenge on Facebook. Here are three of my textile landscapes (earlier work). The rocks are printed from my computer on silk, cut up and hand appliqued to the background. The skies and water are hand dyed. At first glance, they look like paintings but as you get closer, you can see the dimension. The first one is called 'In All Its Glory' and was on exhibit at the Grand National Quilt Show, Waterloo, Ontario, 2002. I kept that one but the others have been sold.
Now it's my turn to challenge another fibre artist, Anne Lucas, of Foggy Rock Fibres, to show her work over the next 5 days.


  1. Fabric? Wow - utterly amazing work! I could have sworn they were all photographs.

  2. just gorgeous-can I ask what is the medium-are they hand dyed with embroidery? thanks

    1. These are textile pieces, hand dyed, printed on silk rocks from my computer & cut out, rocks are hand appliqued to the background, hand embroidery added. Skies and water are separate pieces that have been hand dyed then machine stitched together.
