Artist Statement
I am currently celebrating my 47th year as an artist, in that time I have always been a Fiber artist but have also been a writer illustrator, painter, wearable art maker, costume designer, muralist, and printmaker and above all mother. My work is the fusion of traditional needlework (skills given to me by my mother and grandmother) with fine arts painting drawing, printing drawing, printmaking along with a lot of mixed media. I tend to work in series; one of my ongoing series is the celebration of women lives, stories and herstories. I am basically self-taught with the help of a lot my artist friends.. I work intuitively Each work is made using multi layered processes; exploring what if and experimenting with what might happen if I mix and match whatever medium I�m exploring at the moment. I paint dye, draw, collage and print onto fabric and or paper, which are then quilted, beaded, hand or machine embroidered and embellished with things from �my collections� I consider myself a fiber/ mixed media /quilt artist. Yours Dindga McCannon
