Shadows of the Divine


32″ x 45″


Cotton, batting, fusible web, acrylic ink, Evolon non-woven material


Stitched fabric collage with knife-edge uneven border

Knots & Tangles

Creating the bottom edge was a challenge. I sandwiched a painted strip of Evalon between a traditional knife-edge binding. The non-woven material took the ink well and allowed a detailed edge to be cut into it.


The true work of art is but a shadow of the divine perfection. – Michelangelo
