Is there anything cozier than a greyhound curled up for a nap? I love the beautiful, bright, fall colors in this piece.

This piece was created by applying heat to fused, polyester stretch velvet that has been stitched with cotton thread. When hit with a heat gun or soldering iron, synthetic fabrics melt but cotton thread does not, resulting in some fascinating textures, shapes, and colors.

I love the way unrelated things struggle together in my art: Natural materials in conjunction with the synthetic. Bright colors, interesting shapes, tangled threads, bits of everything. Scraps. I use texture and dimension to add bursts of energy that sometimes explode beyond the confines of the frame. I like to challenge the eye to find harmony within chaos, rhythm in randomness, similarity in opposites. Tiny details elucidate the whole; surprising combinations lead to a new interpretation of ordinary things.

Framed in shadow box frame.
