The things in my studio:
Some are finished, complete, leaning against the heater which has been turned off almost always in this tepid winter.
The painted canvases are waiting patiently for the exhibition (Masks, Wallhangings and other Fiber-Art) in September 2008. Paintings on paper are waiting to be processed as textile designs, collages and drawings want to be scanned, handpainted paper would love to be used for collages.
Under the bed: a stack of masks, some in work. The Spirit-pocket on top. And also painted cotton organdi, linnen and fibers. Painted Tyvek too. All waiting. They know I'll be back!
Oscar is happy on the bed. Right next to him my Moleskin Sketchbook (Miss Doodle is hiding in there:) (don't miss her today )which I embellished with a piece of african batik. The satin green fabric is a textile design directly painted with textile colour onto the fabric.
The little cussions are made with handmade batik fabric and some golden lycra and net fabric, a goodbye present from a fabric company where I worked 2 years ago, (just for a month because I really wanted to be a freelance textile designer). I just stuffed them with a kind of holofil fiber and sewed close! They are very very fluffy.
The bedcover is a piece of linnen fabric, not yet used for a wallhanging...
