Materials & Techniques

Photographed vintage barns in Maine. One of these original images was then photo silkscreened using six-color separation on two white cotton panels. Fabric paint was the medium used in this printing process. Then both panels were further enhanced using the airbrush technique and hand painting with fabric paint. After this process, one panel was cut into vertical strips while the other was cut into horizontal strips. These strips were woven back together; black fabric borders added; cotton batting sandwiched between imagery on front and black cloth on back. Machine quilting done using free motion stitching.
