Silk Ribbon Embroidered Fire Screen
Artist Statement

I met Judith Baker Montano, and taught myself how to do ribbon embroidery through her books. I used it solely as a decoration on clothing, scarves, hats, etc. In the mid '90s, I began to think of bigger items to embroider, such as the fire screen, a cameo crazy quilt, sets of wall hangings, and other projects. I love the art and use silk to create painting in thread. The fire screen took 240 hours to work from a pattern I created. The silk ribbon alone cost $230. Heritage stitches in embroidery were used throughout along with some I developed myself.
