Kathleen's work in printmaking and fiber art is a convergence of her artistic self. Her large bodies of work empahsize her respect for the environment both in inspiration and process. She employs non-toxic and sustainable chemistry in all disciplines of her work.
Eco Printed Fiber Art
Botanicals such as leaves, bark, vegetables and found metal were used to create the color and shapes into the fabrics of these wearables. The dyes within these materials transfer to the fabric leaving on "imprint" of the shape of the object. The process is almost completely sustainable.
Pulp Sprayed Handmade Paper Gallery
The piece that you are viewing is 100% abaca and/or cotton pulp. The colors and shapes were created wholly from wet pigmented pulp that was splattered onto a sub-surface. After the paper was dry it was removed from the sub-structure. The paper is thick and tactile.
