An epiphany is a sudden and striking realization, an AHA moment, as it were.
Mine came almost ten years ago when I realized that I'm making art, not bed quilts, and that a world of materials is out there to explore.
This piece is a digitally printed piece of fabric that I hand colored, then machine stitched.
I then layered on top a piece of non woven material that's cut, burned and painted to form the image I wanted.  It's appliquéd over the base, there is no stitching on it to contrast to the busy surface underneath.
For me, it's essential to keep an open mind and explore constantly, I feel that's the essence of creativity.

  3. Another stunning piece from Betty! I love the colors and your story. It gives me something to think. Thanks again for the interesting topic!
