Textile Sculpture

Nature in White

All of these sculptures are based on forms in nature and recreated in sculptural form with acrylic felt made from recycled water bottles.  I cut, sewed, melted and sculpted the felt into various forms found in nature – lichen, mushrooms, seed pods, mushrooms and trees.  Many of them have hand embroidery details added before and after the melting process.  These pieces and a few others were displayed in a two-person show at The Fredericksburg Center for the Fine Arts in Fredericksburg, VA, in May 2017.
