Erica Shen, a nice young reporter from the Press-Enterprise newspaper, interviewed me this week about my artwork. She had found my work online through this blog, then called to set up an interview. The article appeared in today's paper with black & white photos. The online version has colored photos. I think she did a wonderful job, and if you have time you can read the full article at this link:
As a fabric collage artist, I enjoy working with vintage fabrics and mixed media elements to create art quilt collage pieces. Old fabrics, lace, buttons, sewing notions, ephemera and photographs are my favorite mediums to use.

I chose to name my creations Threads In Time by Pallas, not only to reflect the physical threads of the old textiles, but also to reflect the threads in time each piece travels in an imaginary journey. I added my name, Pallas, to personalize each piece that I create.
I live in Kentucky during the Summer and Fall and the rest of the year in California.
