BARBARA SIMARD, FABRIC ARTIST
An early interest in sewing developed into new passions in my retirement years – Fabric Wall Art and Fabric Sculpture.
Fabric Sculpture is a new interest and a medium I am thoroughly enjoying. Each fabric sculpture is unique and starts with wire to create a frame that is covered with fabric; a fabric hardener is used to harden the fabric. The sculpture can then be highlighted with paint. Sculptures can be placed indoors or weatherproofed for placement in your garden or patio. Sculptures vary in size and custom orders are welcome. Visit my website to see more images of my fabric sculptures.
Fabric Wall Art is like doing a puzzle only I am creating a fabric art scene from pieces of material. Using scissors, tweezers, toothpicks and non-toxic glue, the scene is assembled and layered. Some scenes have hundreds of pieces of fabric by the time I am finished. I can also paint the scene with a water-based sealer allowing the scene to be framed without a glass covering. Non-toxic substances are used in the creation of this art.
Also available, giclee prints of original art and art cards.
