When I create a wearable art piece, it is an iterative process. Even though I make sketches and do notes, it is the inspiration that comes to me in the night or while riding my bike that moves me forward.
I know that I want the piece that I am making for this year's Denman Island Creative Thread Conspiracy Wearable Art Fashion Show to be about leaves. I seem to have have leaves as my central artistic motif these days, in my fabric art (Garden Fantasy Triptych) and my paper based art.
|These two sketches helped me to think about my project, but I am not strictly using them to create my piece, in fact I am going off in different directions.|
