Welcome to Silk and Colour

Welcome to Silk and Colour.  On this blog I will be posting news about my hand embroidered artworks and the things that inspire me.  My first solo show is scheduled for later this year.  In the intervening weeks I will be posting images of my work.

The title of my show is Continuum.  The show will feature 2 series of works:  the Crop Circle series (9 works) and the Flow Series (21 works).

Part of the Flow Series, this work is based on a scientific experiment that recreated a type of flow pattern known as a Von Karman Vortex.  The ground fabric is silk habotai overlaid with hand dyed silk 
organza .

Thousands of random seed stitches and longer random stitches give texture and depth to the background.
