This is a short series called Fear and Anxiety. I’ve taken small collages and interpreted them in thread.

  1. Tea, I’m guessing these peices are small. They are intense both in the obvious (content) and in the process, which, I think, is great. The way the collaged fabric elements resonate with the 3-D of the stitching and attached items, the photo elements and the colors, all together present an intriguing eye candy for the viewer.
    Great stuff!

  2. They are gorgeous Theresa, wow, they are so strong in the expression, and wonderfully embroidered …
    what amazing pieces !!

  11. I may have missed it if you mentioned the name of the class or workshop that showed you how to make these amazing embroidered fabrics? I would love to know how you made them? Did you first stamp on fabric and then embroider it? Did you add any paint? Please oh please let me know if there’s a tutorial or workshop to learn how to make these amazing pieces. Hugs, Maggie
