The images I have captured are printed onto silk fusion with my ink jet printer.  The colour is enhanced with coloured pencil.  The work is embellished with machine and hand stitching and quilted to add dimension.  

 

The Silk Fusion is made with unspun silk fibre (roving, which looks like locks of hair).  The silk fibre is laid out in an organized fashion and fused together with a textile medium to create a fabric with some of the qualities of paper plus having the sheen of silk.  The process of making silk fusion creates uneven, organic edges. All pieces are framed without glass.  Art works are available for sale unless marked with  *.  Gallery 8 on Salt Spring Island, BC carries my work.  Contact them by clicking the Gallery 8  link.   For work with a price contact me for details.
