Digital Fiber Art
New England artist, Wen Redmond explores her medium, fiber, focusing on experimentation and expanding its presentation. Her unique artistic work merges digital processes, photography, collage, media mix and surface design. She has been published widely in books and magazines, featured on Quilting Arts Television and has two available DVD workshops with Interweave Publishing. Wen’s book with CT Publishing, ‘Digital Fiber: Create Your own Mixed Media Masterpieces’ explores printing on fabric, paper and mixed media surfaces. Her work has been included in many juried exhibits and collections, including Marvin Fletcher’s, Quilt National collection. Wen will discuss her book and present samples of the wide variety of substrates you can print on. All sewable!
