Dharma Trading Company, hand dyed painting
Oh, This is exciting. I am shown on Dharma's Featured Artists. I love using their products and I enjoy painting as well as the hand dyeing with the Procion Dyes. This piece was done with Setacolor, and hand dyes. It is pieced and I hand dye the threads that I use to sew on the beads.. Be sure to take a look at all the wonderful items that Dharma has for artists and crafters..
I am a mixed media fiber/quilt artist who loves to work with gourds,and jewelry. I am easily distracted with the next project, and have many going at one time. I have been teaching Fabric Dyeing and Beginning gourd art for many years. I am blessed with my own home studio. We live in the rolling hills near Yosemite National Park, in central Calif. U.S.A. This is a place of Inspiration, Blue Skies and Great Friends. I volunteer with several organizations,and have memberships in P.E.O., Coarsegold Historical So., Sierra Art Trails, Madera Circle Gallery, Yosemite Western Artist, Timberline Gallery and Sierra Mountain Quilters. I teach at my home studio and at local quilt gatherings.
