52 Weeks of Linocuts on Textile: Week 1

I have always loved beautifully embroidered fabrics and exquisite textiles, especially handwoven silks, cottons, and wools.  So when I was given exotic handwoven African textiles back in October and asked to make a book from them, it took me a few days to figure out how I was going to tell stories with fabric.  I wrote a few blog posts about my experiences, but did not have time to follow up as much as I intended.

During the next 52 Weeks, I will blog about my experiences of printing on rare and exotic textiles and turning cloth pages into unique story books.

Walking through Clouds

I have been taking morning walks in tranquil Maryland meadows.  
There is nothing more grounding than walking through clouds.
