I Love Mark Making!

After completing my 100 day project in 2017 I knew my art practiced had changed.

Mark making is now an important part of my process. I love it! While I don’t see that I’ll be using it in all of my textile paintings going forward, certainly for the foreseeable future it will be featured quite a bit.

I love the patterning and fine detail it adds to the work. And I love that I have so much to learn about how to incorporate it into my compositions.

This was exactly what I was looking for last year, I was looking to reinvigorate my studio time. Making pieced improvisational textiles had gotten too easy. I was a little bored with it, hence the reason I declared my Structures series over in 2016.

These first two larger works are just a start at what I intend to be an in depth exploration into the marriage of mark making and improvisational pieced compositions.
