Arline Martens - Fabric Artist

I am a fiber artist employing cottons, silks and thread to create art. The fabric is dyed or painted by me then heavily stitched by hand or by machine. Additional layers of fabric are incorporated to each fiber art piece to bring a 3D element to the composition. I use thread as if it were a drawn line to define, to accentuate or to build texture. I love capturing the viewers attention through unexpected details, bits of visual delight which are rewarding aspects of the creative process.
