Metamorphosis Exhibition at Del Ray Artisans

Growing Up

The process for both pieces is the same. First, a digital collage is made and printed out onto Transfer Artist Paper (TAP). It is then ironed onto fabric. From there, I embroider over the collage and add beads, ribbon, or wire mesh depending on the texture desired.  These two pieces were stretched onto canvas stretcher bars, stapled down and framed with simple black frames. Growing Up is 8″ x 14″ inches. Little Flower is 9″ x 24″.

They are on exhibit in Alexandria, VA until November 2 in a show titled Metamorphosis.

Del Ray Artisans: View the art exhibit from October 3 through November 2, 2014 during gallery hours: Thursdays 12-6pm, Fridays & Saturdays 12-9pm, and Sundays 12-6pm. The gallery is free, open to the public and handicap accessible.
