MIXED MEDIA TAPESTRIES add more dimension to your art collections. My Mixed Media art works contain unexpected, surprise materials such as paper, maps, cloth, plastic, cellophane, and sometimes shredded money, and of course, yarn holds it all together. These substances are woven simultaneously into the bodies of the work.

ALL FOUR FLAGS ARE SOLD!
PEACE IS PATRIOTIC MIXED MEDIA FLAGS
I believe that Peace is always Patriotic and therefore representations of Freedom, and Liberty are always appropriate as this is the cornerstone of our nation. Here then are four of my positive mixed media fiber art expressions. Flag #1 and Flag #2 are stars and stripes fabrics. Flag #3 and Flag #4 are comprised of shiny papers. I love to upcycle and recycle. All works are hand woven by me on looms. I hand dyed shredded US currency and interlaced wads (see image) of it into the body of the weavings. There WERE four individual art works available and ready to hang on your walls.
