Layered and digitally manipulated personal photographs printed on cotton and silk organza are the materials I currently use in this new body of work. Epson Ultrachrome archival inks printed on high quality fabrics are the feature of this unique artform. All pieces printed or hand painted on semi-transparent silk organza are adhered to canvas using matte polymer medium. The photographs printed on cotton are fused to cradled wood panels using heat sensitive bonding material. Occasionally, found objects are added for interest. I'm drawn to using these materials because of a lifelong love of fabric and a fascination with the photographic image as a design tool....two elements with dynamic possibilities. What intrigues me most are the colors and shapes that reveal themselves in the physical cutting and layering process.
