I was very excited to have one of my wall hangings chosen to be published in the Sew Somerset Winter 2011 issue. I've known since the end of July that my work would probably be published, but I didn't want to say anything until it was official. Well, it is official! I received my complimentary issue of the magazine a couple of days ago, and my artwork is on page 132. It is titled "Letters to Matthew". Here is the wall hanging - the photograph is of the pretty young lady who writes the letters to Matthew.
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.
