    1. Thanks Jan-Michael!
      Ghost Bees was created it in response to a call for a juried "black and white" show at a gallery in Grande Prairie, Alberta. I knew immediately what to make. The plight of our pollinators featured heavily in the news last summer and I wanted to show how we rely on bees for our very existence. Using an oil paint pen on black fabric, I listed many plants pollinated by bees that we can't live without. I made other background fabrics with bleach discharge (to mimic honeycombs), and stitch, and sculpted the cheesecloth elements. Thankfully it was accepted to the show!

  5. What a fantastic array of techniques and quilts! I've tried a few. I did a Ricky Tims convergence quilt. Loved that. I haven't tried any portraits. Yours is amazing.
