Following on from the Copa Abstractions: Weekly Art Quilt Project, I have set myself a new creative challenge for 2018 – Taking Shape: Cues from Nature. Each month, I will create a 50x50cm abstract composition drawing my inspiration from nature with a focus on shape. I will use my hand-dyed fabrics enhanced by textural surface stitching. My palette is not necessarily tied to my inspiration subject.
The first showcase date was 15 February and I created this video to reveal my completed artwork:
