Gallery Installation

Last May, my husband (landscape photographer, Mike Buchheit) and I installed our work at the Fountain Hills Artists Gallery. We are excited to be represented at this wonderful gallery with a fantastic group of talented, supportive artists! If you're in greater Phoenix, be sure to swing by.

Machine-stitched Wool Portraits

My little Singer Featherweight II isn't able to do free-motion emobroidery, but I'm enjoying the quirky results of working with a standard machine. Here are some of my latest experiments in machine-stitched mini wool portraits (dimensions: 3"x 4.25"). The base material is handmade felt from Merino wool. I love drawing little narratives, and this technique allows me to combine traditional illustration with fiber art. (Follow me on Instagram if you want to see more.)
