Working on a series

Australian quilt top is done, but instead of quilting right away, I’m moving on to designing the next one. I’m trying to keep my momentum up to finish a series.  Some artists may think only of one piece at a time. But maybe because I’m married to a sculptor — I have in my mind an installation view of a series of work, and each piece will be part of the overall concept.

Notes and sketches from the Creamery Arts Center. It’s kind of an odd gallery space, irregular and broken spaces. I’m working back and forth, between sketches in my notebooks, drawings on the computer, and the actual fabric constructions on the wall.

  1. I love the surfer; can’t wait to see the rest. The colors are fabulous! Is the surfer hair a result of your monument / landmark series? What made you decide not to use the arm that’s still on the wall? (As you can see, I think your design process is fascinating!)

  2. What a great idea – the series as an installation.

    I think the piece with the green on the yellow background has huge potential to become a vacuum cleaner.
