Windows On Woodstock

Windows On Woodstock is my textile art studio in Santa Ynez, CA. It is a converted barn which sits high on a hill overlooking Woodstock Road and the Santa Ynez Valley. Within the 1500+ square feet I create art pieces from my hand dyed fabrics which I screen print, paint, stencil, otherwise embellish and stitch. My work ranges from representational to conceptual to abstract. Several series are incorporated into my body of work.

"Two Umbrellas"

I am currently enhancing my studio with additional work surface space, and have not been working on new projects. I have also been spending a great deal of time on the internet, pre-ordering supplies to complete my required supply list for Art Quilt Tahoe, this fall.  I will be attending the workshop taught by Jane Dunnewold who is a remarkable artist.  In the meantime, I thought I would post a photo of this work, which has not previously been shown here on the blog.  This piece, entitled "Two Umbrellas" was done from a photograph that I took of my husband in the tulip gardens outside Amsterdam.  He had stepped out onto the stepping stones in the lake, in order to dry our umbrellas after some rains.  This is one of my favorite pieces, and will never be offered for sale. But the process inspired me to do other pieces using a similar technique.  Hope you enjoy it!
