Art Show – Liz Davidson

I was introduced to fiber art while working on my outdoor recreation degree and taking art
classes at Southern Illinois University in Carbondale. Later in life, while a stay-at-home mother,
I opened a small store in Makanda, IL, selling my hand dyed clothing as well as my carved and
sculpted candles. I eventually became more interested in creating pieces of art using textiles. I
was inspired by repurposing fabric that would otherwise be destined for a landfill.

Using the raw edge applique technique, I fuse cut pieces of fabric together and machine sew a
variety of stitches and free motion thread painting. I love the combination of fabric and thread
that brings texture and life to my art.

The focus of my art tends to be representations of the natural world with both realistic and
surrealistic elements.

This show will run from 6 Nov through the holiday season, with a reception on Sunday, 6 Nov, 12:30.
