The wolf fish is a fascinating creature that plays an important role in the ocean’s ecosystems. Unfortunately, overfishing, pollution, and climate change are putting immense pressure on its population. Without action, the wolf fish could become extinct in our lifetimes.
Oarweed, Wakame, and Bladderwrack. A textile project with a background dyed with Indigo. Seaweeds represented in a variety of media and techniques – Machine embroidery, hot iron cutting and crochet. Found objects suspended on fabric strips, printed in acrylics on seaweed, mark-making. All supported on driftwood and backed on found abandoned fishing net.
Native Oyster Textile project – Background is dyed Indigo and Fustic. I found the other objects including, native oyster shells, driftwood, stones, fishing line. I attached and embellished them with embroidery and beading, and framed on driftwood.
I liked the bird and thought it would be good to sew it.
