Silk Fusion

Silk fusion also know as silk paper. It is normally made to use a book covers and other types of crafts. I decided it would make wonderful wall art, so I set out on an adventure with several themes in mind for this. It is a process using silk slivers adhered together using a medium. I have added gold, silver and copper to some of the images. Yarns, fabric and found objects are prevalent in several pieces in the series. I love this medium since it is full of surprises, much like etching that I did many years ago. It’s the element of surprise that excites me.

Dwellings

Dwellings are everywhere and are used by animals, humans, insects, and such. In this series of silk fusions, I have attempted to include creative places to hangout or to live.

Natural Disasters

Mount St Helen’s volcano was the first natural disaster that I experienced up close. More recently the fires in California, especially Paradise where I lived as a child, left me saddened by the devastation and the loss of lives. It seemed fitting to express my feelings in this series of work.
