Today’s blog tour participant is Natalya Aikens, of Art by Natalya.
Natalya is a artist and photographer that works with textiles and stitching. Lately she has incorporated recycled elements into her work, specifically plastic bags and dryer sheets. In Natalya’s hands these humble materials are transformed into beautiful architectural depictions. Her eye for line and design is unerring. She has a Cloth Paper Scissors Workshop Video—see here, her work is regularly featured in prestigious exhibits and publications, and she teaches and runs workshops.
I’ve known Natalya online for some time, and finally met her in person at a SAQA conference a few years ago. She was even more charming than I had imagined, and her knowledge about the larger fiber/art world made her a great companion for gallery hopping. I am so happy that she agreed to view and review my Quilting Arts Workshop Video, Surface Design Essentials for the Printed Quilt, and am excited to click over to her blog to read her perspective. Tomorrow’s blogger is Lyric Kinard http://lyrickinard.com/blog/
