I had a new piece of art, a natural plant/skirt installation at Mid Summer Fete Sunday 1 - 5 pm! Here are a few pics of it and of the natural accessories to go with it, a bracelet and necklace. The raw canvas for the skirt, top and hat band were dyed with Turmeric and lemon juice. The live plants on the skirt are wrapped in cotton rug hooking backing and sewn onto it. The plants are 2 Celosias (orange and red), a purple Lobelia, Oregano, Lemon Thyme and Lavender. The plant trim at bottom is oat grass wrapped in floral moss. The hat and skirt trim is Pine cones, leaves, Willow branches, Tansy and Buttercups.
I'm a mixed media artist, printmaker, painter, poet, and a performer. I love to teach art to adults and co-host Word Whips writing group. I recently joined Federation of Canadian Artists as a supporting member and I'm a Director of Pandora's Collective Poets.
