Published, again!

One of my threadpaintings made it into an American / International fibre art magazine!


This summer issue of Fiber Art Now is out on stands, and I was lucky enough to have my art selected for one of the sections titled, 'Flora and Fauna'.

woo!  on page 52 amongst many beautiful creations!

Fiber Art Now magazine had a call for entry earlier in the year specifically on the subject of Flora and Fauna.  I had JUST completed From Humble Beginnings and thought how perfect that this piece as both (alfalfa and honey bees at Bergheim).  So I gave it a try.

From Humble Beginnings, 2013 - a bigger piece I had framed 16x16"  (sold)

Out of all the entries, eighteen were selected.  Worldwide.  I didn't win any award, but I sure am proud of this!  (See all the selected works on pp 52, 53, 54, and 55 of the issue.)

Thank you Fiber Art Now!  This is a great perk in my summer.  : )


ps.  I know of one other Canadian sister who has work in there - Arlee Barr's A Mother's Heart is in the section on ecodyes, along with a write up on her process.  : )  Arlee is severely affected by her studio/home flooding in Calgary.  You can read more here...

Congratulations! I'm sure it must be especially satisfying since you doing buildings was a scare for you back then :). Wonderful piece and well deserved recognition!
Stay inspired!

Awesome Monika - and doesn't it look beautiful on the page? It belongs there for sure.
(PS I've tried the capcha thing 4 times now...holy cow, I can't make them out today! Is it me, or are they getting more obscure?!?)

Thank you Monika for the mention--and things are slowly getting back to normal, as normal as they ever will be after *that* experience!

*** ps - to SCC readers, I must clarify that it was an open call for entry that I responded to. Fiber Art Now magazine did not contact me initially.
Still - pretty exciting! : )
