I created my talisman series to provide the viewer with a sense of peace and calmness in these uncertain times. Talisman III speaks to both the dry desert and the springs of life that can be found in it. Life is not lived in black and white and we must search for the jewels that are ever present but not always seen.
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 desire to step in my work for a time of reflection.
This quilt features batiks, commercial fabrics, hand dyed lace, beads, ribbon, and yarn. Machine quilted.
