8" x 10" Mixed Media Art Quilts
Staci's art quilts are created using traditional whole cloth quilt construction. She begins with natural cotton fabric to which she applies many layers of acrylic paint and washes. Textural elements are interspersed within these layers. When this background is complete, she applies more textural elements, such as yarn, paper, netting and thread. She free-motion quilts the piece as needed. Then she paints a foreground to which she attaches the beads, vintage pieces, or found objects which are the focus of the piece.
The appeal for Staci of working with fabric, beads, yarn and found objects is that doing so is such a superbly tactile experience. However, since the pieces are so very tactile, some of the overall effect of each piece is lost in the translation to a 2D image. To experience the full depth of Staci's artwork, please visit her at one of her upcoming shows and see her artwork in person.
