Learning to Silk-Screen

In 2012 I took a series of workshops at Oregon College of Art & Craft.  One of the first things I learned was how to screen print. This was a revelation for me, because I finally found a way to take images that took forever to create (my paper-cut works) and reproduced the images into a functional and useful medium, fabric! My paper cut works now have a second life, they are not just static, on a wall, under a piece of glass! They are more 3-dimentional and interactive, and playful. I went a bit crazy and sewed hundreds of pillows with my whale paper cut image, and also used the remnant fabric in mini-quilts. I continue to sell these in my online shop!
