I’ve Been Working… I Promise

I know I haven’t posted much lately, but I swear it’s because I’ve been busy! I did get sidetracked by some health problems, but I’m back on my game! I really want to tell everyone what I’ve been working on, and now I have enough of it done that I can share!

I’ve been fabric printing! I know, that doesn’t sound super exciting, but trust me, it’s not like what you’re used to! I’ve been collaborating with two amazing artists: Beau Brokop, an amazing photographer and digital artist, as well as Cayton Cox, and amazing photographer. I’m making the fabric palettes, using my amazing quilting skills, obvs, and then printing their art on it! It gives a result that is astounding, as well as painfully beautiful to look at!

Over a dozen pieces are currently on display at Promise You Art House, and if you are in the 219 area this weekend, you should check out their event for the new show opening!

The featured image on this article is a piece from Beau Brokop, and it’s a 15″ by 15″ wall hanging quilt! It’s currently on display at Promise You Art House. I’ve printed about 50 of these images on fabric so far in sizes ranging from 5″ by 7″s to 24″ by 24″ wall hanging pieces. This is extra rewarding for me, because I’ve been thinking and dreaming this up for months! I started work on it in March, and I’ve just kind of exploded with it since then!

I’ve been printing on all sorts of fabric, and trust me, there were mistakes, and things that didn’t turn out, but for the most part I’ve made some amazing prints. I think I might even be teaching a class on it next spring in Minnesota! Also, anyone let me know of any places around Chicago or Northwest Indiana I can teach or lecture about it!

Check out some of the images I’ve been printing after the jump!

Here are some pieces by Beau Brokop!

Bio lifted from Beau’s website:
