1000 Artisan Textiles, "Shrine to Land and Sky"

1000 Artisan Textiles is a beautiful new book on the market by Sandra Salamony and Gina M. Brown, published by Quarry Books. I feel blessed to have my Mixed Media Fiber Art, included with so many wonderful artists.. There is such a variety of textiles displayed on the 320 pages, it is truly eye candy for the soul as well a inspirational. My piece, "Shrine to Land and Sky" is on page 224. Art pieces from all over the world have been included in the colorful pages.

It is exciting to read about the "ingredients" used. The Chapters in the book start out with Wearable Art & Couture, Fashion Accessories, Soft Furnishings & Vessels, Tapestries & Display Art and Art Quilts.

I am so grateful to David Hoffman for taking the wonderful photographs so that I could enter. David is an amazing artistic photographer, he and his wife Charlotte live in the mountains of Mariposa near Yosemite National Park. Charlotte is a pastel and watercolor artist. They are wonderful friends and working artists. The awards for their work are too long to list.

Be sure to come to our area for Sierra Art Trails the first weekend in Oct. and you can meet many of the artists in our area. More about that later.
