Textile Work / drawing with thread

For more than 10 years I’ve been very interested in textiles and they are present in a big part of my body of work.  I have experimented with both hand embroidery and machine sewing work.   Within the years I developed a way to use my sewing machine as a tool to draw with black thread on fabric. This technique has allowed me to take my illustrated work from the paper into fabric and transform the illustrations into an art object in the form of a doll or a textile collage.  I have specialized in Mexican themed dolls with my interpretation of Frida Kahlo and La Catrina.

As I continue my research into textiles for the past 2 years I've started to experiment with hand embroidery on paper.  I continue to research the world of textiles and integrated it on my visual art work in different ways.
