Custom Art

                          Why not have your favorite landscape photograph made into art?

     Most of us have a favorite landscape photograph of a special place holding special memories. 

     I can start with your favorite photograph, preferably a digital photo that can be e-mailed to me works best. If not, I will take your photo and scan it. I then load it into my computer so I can enlarge it to the desired size. I then create a detailed drawing to use as my pattern. With the composition in place, I select different fabric textures, designs and colors to bring your scene to life. I use a combination of sewing methods to achieve the desired effects on your piece of art.

 Early Morning

 This original photograph was taken by a gentleman as he walked a beach on the East Coast very early in the morning. The photograph held special meaning for him and he wanted to turn it into a piece of art.

Into The Light

     




     The fabrics I chose were satins for the sky, overlaid with sheers to create that special early morning sky colors. The sand was done in a mixture of upholstery fabrics. Free motion sitiching brings the details to life. This piece is finished in what I consider a soft method with a fabric border instead of being strectched on wooden bars and a wooden frame.


For Melissa

     In August of 2016, I was contacted by a family who had lost their mother in December of 2015. The loss was sudden and unexpected. For a family, healing from such an event is difficult. To honor their mother, the family wanted to have a fiber landscape art piece created using just her clothes. They wanted imagery of her mother's favorite places in Montana.

    To create this piece, the family sent me a number of photographs of different favorite locations along with photographs of specific flowers and trees. It was challenging to combine these elements in a way that resembled a well balanced natural landscape. The finished art measured 45 inches wide and 18 inches tall.
