Metamorphosis

Metamorphosis is the triptych that completes the series that I began 2015. Chrysalis Awakening was the first in this series and was created  for the “It’s Time for Colour Show.”  Quilters who had participated in the National Juried Show in 2015 were asked if they were interested in creating an art piece to be donated to raise funds for the Children’s Wish Foundation of Canada.

I knew I wanted to complete the series, it was finally completed and I entered the triptych into the National Juried show in 2016. It was accepted into the Art – Naturescapes, Pictorial Wall Quilts.

Pages from Life’s Journey: works in a series

I was very taken by the works of Toronto artist: Sung Ja Kim Chisholm. Pages from Life’s Journey were on display at the World of Threads Exhibit.

These pieces are made with white fabric and plaster.

There is a simplicity that I find appealing.

The absence of colour makes me want to get close to examine the nuances of each piece.

There is a similarity between each one, yet each series evokes a very different feeling.
