Beyond the Edge Fiber Artists - "My Inner Self Portrait" exhibit

I'm honored to be a member of a local fiber art group called Beyond the Edge. Our first exhibit for 2015, My Inner Self Portrait, will be premiering at Road to California.

"My Inner Self Portrait"

A fine arts fiber exhibit exploring aspects of self-portraiture. In this exhibit the artist was asked to look beyond the mere physical and instead present an inner view. The art work may reflect how the artist sees themselves at this time, or at a formative moment in their life. Each piece reveals something unique to the individual and at the same time, that which is universal to all.

My piece is called Becoming Me. This artwork is a part of the “Peel Away The Layers” series that I started when I was approaching my 50th birthday.  I realized that I was peeling away the layers to become the woman that I am today.  Underneath the layers is a slightly wonky, colorful woman.

  1. The techniques, colors and composition of this piece makes it luscious and very, very interesting. It will be great to see it hanging in the "Inner Self Portrait" exhibit with Beyond the Edge Fiber Artists at Road to California.
