Come See My Stuff!

ImageOn Route 26 just outside of Libertytown, MD is a wonderful family owned winery called Loew’s Vineyards.  I met Lois, one of the owners, a few months ago when I did a tour of local wineries in preparation for The Toast To Frederick.  She gave me some wonderful ideas for art quilts and this weekend took on four of my pieces.  I am SO excited!  If you are in the area, stop in for some absolutely fabulous wine (try the blueberry wine – made out of 100% blueberries – yum!)  And don’t forget to check out the art work!  There are several local artist featured… A wood worker who uses a wood turning technique to create these cute little containers… A water color artist whose work is just exquisite (check out her “Ladies Picking Berries”) …An artist who “flattens” wine bottles into convenient cheese cutting boards (these are totally cute and reasonably priced to boot!). 

Thanks again to Lois, who was so helpful and supportive.  Remember, this week in Maryland Wine Week – head out to your local vineyard and support the farmers by drinking your full! 🙂

 

These are three of the pieces that I have for sale at Loew’s.

I have always loved the process of transforming pieces of fabric into quilts. For years I collected scraps, just to be sure I'd have the right piece for the project at hand. Eventually, as my skills progressed, my hobby grew into art. I moved from simple quits, to 'landscape quilting' and then eventually onto portrait work. I am new to the art field and am self-taught, learning from my mistakes as well as from my successes. I create my images using only fabric and thread. I remain true to this limitation for two reasons; first, I love the challenge of finding new ways to depict ever more challenging subjects. Second, fabric work remains my true love. I enjoy the hunt for fabrics; where other artists might blend oil paints, I love finding that perfect shade or pattern for a specific need. I refer to my style as "gestalt impressionism" for one needs to take a step back from my pieces to get the whole picture. My view point changes by what is influencing me at the time. Recently I've begun to focus on the journey of the individual. I enjoy working on portraits of people whom I feel have lead interesting lives.
