Marge Bresel has been sewing since age 13. She moved from garments to traditional quilting to art quilting and now uses various surface design and mixed-media techniques. Fiber art is one of her “windows on the world.” Shape and color are her expressions of mood and emotions, along with a sizeable stash of fabric. Below are her thoughts on the creation of Earthly Waves.
“Earthly Waves weaves its magic throughout all matter. It is the food that provides nutrients to the other elements. A basis for life, it comes in many forms and colors.”
Materials used: cotton, silk, acrylic paint, metallic thread
Techniques: fusing, decorative stitches, stamping
Part of the Elements exhibition by the Midwest Fiber Art Alliance on display at the little gallery through April 28.
