This week I am putting the finishing touches on the last of twelve fiber arts in my series titled EXPLOSIONS. Weird, as it’s not really exploding fireworks or soda pop taking flight to the ceiling after a shaken can made by a purposeful teenager in my house. No, this is how I am evolving; I searched a lot this past year and when I signed up for a “series” online class with Katie Pasquini Masoput, I had no idea how this would pull from me all I had to give and give me exactly what I needed to “let go”. Notice how I didn’t say, “go”.
I have put pen to paper, sketched a few crazy works and developed them along with the 12 others, spending hundreds of hours to self-teach the art of collaging with a stitch rather from glue. Its crazy therapy as you tug and pull and stretch the limits on what seems at first glance one broadcloth…but it’s really SO many hundreds of pieces cut up, assembled and sewn together to portray your first thought or idea on your sketch pad. It does evolve and it does take on a life of its own but it’s my world and it feels comforting being able to pull from within and let it all out to share with you! Enjoy!
