Textile Arts

Art Quilts and other decorative fabric creations. I am inspired by Russian folk designs of various traditions: the flower shapes come primarily from the red-and-gold Khokhloma lacquerware (mostly known for decorations on dishes and spoons). The cat who appears here and there made his way from the XVIII century lubok woodcuts. I often finish the project in the spirit of a mixed media work, with a touch of fabric markers or whatever other medium may call to me.

Some of the fabric cards are available in my Etsy shop, Firebird Fashionings. There are also traditional paper greeting cards.
