Make You a One of a Kind Painting
I will paint you a small 2"x2" piece of art and mail it to you.
My work process starts by knitting using string or very tightly wound yarn. I then stretch that over a canvas and paint over it 20-50 times with white paint in order to see just the texture and shape of the knit structure. Usually knit objects are specifically about the color or fuzziness of the wool and I enjoy how the effect changes when it is just stretched and the dimensions of the structure are the focus. I hope you like it too!
Training & Qualifications
I have a BFA in Fiber and Material Studies from Tyler School of Art in Philadelphia, PA.
My work is represented by Urban Gallery and Books at 2201 Pine St. Philadelphia, PA.
