The Organic Landscape
I was inspired by the colors and forms of the plants in my organically-maintained landscape beds at the height of the summer season.
Artist-painted and commercial cotton and silk fabrics, cyanotype, seminole piecework, machine quilted.

Created for the invitational SAQA exhibit Seasonal Palette.  Seasonal Palette was one of SAQA's most popular and widely traveled exhibitions. The hardbound catalog of the exhibit is available here
I made an 38 page Artist Journal detailing my creative process as I made this work, and the Journal was  displayed along with the quilt when exhibited.  The Journal has been scanned and is available to view on the SAQA website here.

Size: 78"h x 32"w

For Sale: $5,200.  The Artist Journal will be included with the quilt.
