Description

Classical and fantasy literature, medieval manuscripts, nature and ruins continue to inspire my work. “Leaves of the North”, inspired by George R.R. Martin’s “A Song of Ice and Fire”, represents what I imagine to be a “found” page from an ancient manuscript.

An off-white, aged palette with silver accents is painted over layers of canvas, paper and fabric collage. Machine stitching around the edges adds interest with pattern and texture, as do the small, hand-sewn black crosses in waxed linen thread. Beads adorn the surface, subtly catching the light. Calligraphic words appear in pencil and white gel pen.
