The Fire Within

You need to have a certain amount of intestinal fortitude to  make important work.  You need to go beyond the pretty and defy the socially accepted norms at times.
This piece is called the Fire Within, because that's what it takes to have to push past boundaries.
It's dedicated to the artists who stick with their messages, and forge their own paths.

The Fire Within,  30x24"

silk, cotton and wool- nuno felted, machine quilted and hand painted.


  1. It is fabulous, Betty! Thank you for your generosity in sharing your work.

  2. Spot on, Betty! You've articulated what many are thinking. Love the transitions from wool to stitch in this piece. Just wonderful.
