I've been experimenting--making fabric of used tea bags to stitch. I love the idea of it's fragility yet strength & the marks the captured tea makes upon the paper container. Tea bag paper can generally withstand more abuse & water than normal paper. I like the way no tea bag is alike, as the subject matter I stitch--each of us is unique & special.
These are some pieces still in process, but I'm liking the ability to stitch on paper of a sort. I'm hoping to create a new body of work using this material & concept, as well as trying fine, transparent papers.

Isn't it amazing that these 50 columns of broken comb like forms, create such a powerful image.

Soon many of the pieces in "The Brain-Art Initiative" will be moving from its current location, the Beverly Arts Center, to The University of Chicago Medical Facility.
This is the first time I'll have work in a university medical facility and I'm very excited.
This is the piece that will be traveling onto the University. It's multi threads on fiberglass mesh, machine stitched. It received 3rd place.
Lia Cook also had a piece in the show, receiving 1st Place. You can see it below:
