Artist Statement: I wanted to create an art quilt of sexy dancers in a dance studio after I was inspired by the flowing movement of dancers I witnessed at a dance performance recently.
The focus of the piece is silhouetted dancers in a studio. I thread painted their musculature using warm colored thread. I used trapunto applique so the dancers would also pop. The walls are white brocade, accentuated with free motion quilting throughout. The window is stripped piecing with metallic thread painting. A fine embroidered border surrounds the window. The studio floor tiles are exactly the right perspective so you feel like you are also standing in the studio.
