After finishing up my commission, I switched to the opposite size extreme and made a bunch of pieces for Art-O-Mat. These little pieces have been on the back burner for a while. I forgot how much fun they are to create. Plus life at Art-O-Mat has been rather busy. One of the busiest machine is at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas. There machine sells over 100 little piece of art a day, making for a nice check for the artists. I'm also excited whenever I find out my work has been in the Whitney Museum or the Smithsonian American Art Museum. Plus, I just notice that they have a machine in Cairns, Austraila and Vienna, Austria . As far as I know none of my work has travelled that far, but maybe one of these days I can check it out in person.
Above are some of the "Dreams" pieces created with fabric beads -- each little scroll representing a dream hidden inside. Below is my "I Felt" series. I use hand dyed wool felt, ribbons, embellishments and a fun little word. I love coming up with different words and then trying to match embellishments to the feelings.
For my "Bits and Pieces" series I created these colorful little quilts from the scraps trimmed from my commission. I love how I can take what would normally be thrown away and transform it into a little piece of beauty.
Finally, these are the pieces that I made from the Pizza Planet fabrics and fabric paper.
