I created my talisman series to provide the viewer with a sense of peace and calmness in these uncertain times. Talisman II speaks to both the desert rocks and carvings and the blue sky above. Life can sometimes feel tangled but we must search for the jewels that are in all our lives.
I work to have a sense of drama in my art. To add depth and enhance the feeling, I use a painterly technique of different fabrics, textures and fibers. I want the viewer to pause, ponder and reflect.
This quilt features batiks, commercial fabrics, hand dyed lace, beads, ribbon, and yarn. Machine quilted.
