Post Card Art
Originally uploaded by yarnpunk
I've been busy working my stitched collages into finished pieces. These three are for Kodiak's annual Post Card Art Show. Show opens 6:00 PM Friday, February 18th at the Harbor Building at 334 Shelikof Street. I am currently working up more of these in a slightly larger format. Stay tuned for photos!

Getting just a little bit side tracked yesterday, I dug out the sewing machine and threads and...
lost myself to several hours of stitching, stitching, stitching. And when finished...
found myself busily collaging and weaving strips together to create backgrounds for smaller works of art. Here are a few examples of the finished backgrounds I intend to use:
Now all I need is some plexiglass, wood, spray paint and a few tools and supplies from my arsenal to finish these little guys! Time to start sketching designs...

Haven't posted one of these in awhile. Actually I haven't really posted much of anything in awhile. Might as well have been living in a black hole as far as blogging goes. Having my life packed up in cardboard boxes and moving from rental to rental over the past couple of years has proved creatively challenging. Thankfully I had residency work last school year to keep me busy and explorative. Now that the moving is over, the boxes unpacked, I have permanent studio space! I still plan to spin yarns and create mail art, but I am definitely drawn to exploring more mixed-media applications involving fibers and recycled materials and putting more energy into the Tide Pool Project. Feeling a bit rusty and slow to start, but I'm moving again. Right now I'm working on assembling jellyfish out of recycled plastics and yarn for a gallery in Anchorage. More details and photos to follow soon.
