Touch Me, Feel Me, Felt Me.

The Crossroads Arts Collective launch event At Grau Haus in Hollywood was a big success and everyone throughly enjoyed themselves as we grooved to the music of spinning vinyl by DJ Sooze.  The space looked amazing and everyone's work was beautiful.   I was so happy to have the support of so many of my friends and happy to meet some amazing new women.  And what a small world...some of my friends knew some of the other artist's friends and so on and so on. 

If you were at the show, come take a virtual second look.  And if you were unable to make it, come on in and look around right here.  Hope you have a virtual touch me, feel me, felt me experience.  If you see something you like, just drop me a line by clicking HERE.

Nuno Felted Collage Shawl

Darling Karen is modeling one of my latest creations. It's really a collage using nuno felting as the medium. I am in my element making collages whether I'm working with paper, Photoshop,textiles or whatever.

 I dyed the silk organza and the blue/peach wool roving which is the base for this shawl.  To that I added taupe and brown roving, hand knit pieces donated to me by my friend Laurie who is a fabulous knitter, (she was actually tired of some of her hand knit sweaters - lucky me, huh!!), other hand dyed silks, vintage sari ribbons, yarn, Tilly Thomas beaded string, repurposed fabric and what ever else was lying around!

If you are interested in purchasing this or any of my other work, please email me by clicking HERE. Thank you for your interest.
