I started painting cotton about 4 years ago, after I stared weaving again and making my Encased Textiles. It is a way for me to help bridge the gap between two very different materials, paint and fibers. My thought was if I could paint cotton, one of the materials I manipulate in my weavings, it would help make my body of work more cohesive. Whether it translates or not, it has been therapeutic for me. Maybe 🐑 and llamas will be next 😂!!!!
