Ascension Of The Butterfly Women
Tapestry - Textile - Art Quilt
I love to portray images of women from many cultures in my work. I also enjoy having my figures floating in the sky. There are a few special techniques used in this quilt. I have used discharge paste on the reddish fabrics at the top of the quilt, which alters the original colors from deep shades to lighter shades and produces interesting effects. Also, the azure sections of the sky are actually made from photos of blue patio steps where some of the original paint had chipped off to reveal the other layers beneath. This gives a pleasing effect of an azure sky with clouds.
