Thesis Show Update

I just thought it was about time to update you all on the progress of my thesis show. Thanks to lots of feedback from my last show I have been working on a few things that either were not successful or that needed to be explored. In the above photo, I am experimenting with overlapping pattern and transition by using silk organza fabric. On the right you can see some of my 3-D leaves, making the piece look closer to “real” like the fake plants we sometimes use instead of the real thing.

Here are some of the fabric panels I have printed so far, as you can see I am running out of wall space!

This piece is 11 feet long, you can’t say I never experiment with scale!

Since then she has attained an M.F.A in Fibers, participated in various solo and group exhibitions and trade shows, won Second Place in the Annual Juried Artist Book Symposium at the ACA Library of SCAD, and received the Ben C.
