For this art piece (above), I combined brush painting, stamping, stenciling, and pen drawing (the red strokes).



My son, Miles, and I collaborated on this canvas piece (above), working back and forth between us. First I stenciled designs in colorful fabric paints. Miles then wove pen drawings through and around the stencils.

Using a collection of colored pens on silk organza, my son, Miles, drew the piece above.



Layering his sheer design over a variety of printed fabrics takes the drawing to another level.
