Pinata is an exploration of color and line using a combination of bright saturated fabrics and neutrals. A variety of values from very light ecru to dark chocolate brown adds depth and dimension.
Putting colors together intuitively, I use fabric the way a painter might use paint to engage viewers from a distance, yet invite a closer look.
Irregularly spaced vertical stitching lines add texture using variegated thread.
Size: 12″ x 12″ mounted on painted black canvas with a wire on the back for easy hanging.
I create all my work in my studio overlooking a lake in Reston, VA. Each wall hanging is quilted individually using my domestic home sewing machine. The designs are stitched freehand, with no marking ahead of time and no computer program, just me drawing the designs in my head with the machine’s needle and thread.
Each piece has my signature stitched into the front in an unobtrusive spot.
Care: Avoid hanging in direct sunlight. To remove dust, brush lightly with a lint roller.
Return policy: Enjoy your new piece in your home or office. If it doesn’t suit your space, let me know and return it to me at your expense within seven days of receipt and I will refund the purchase price.
