This is a great example of where a picture tells a thousand words. In this hand stitched sham, I collaborated with my husband Charlie to integrate many fabrics to create this fantasy montage. Working with fabrics to create montage art also is functional art that can be used as home fashions that are elegant and vividly colorful. The art form of designing handmade shams, pillows and throws is a time consuming and very thoughtful endeaver. Selecting fabrics is a very creative and imaginative endeaver imagination to produce these wonderful pieces of what I refer to as fabric art. The whole is more than the sum of its parts when the finished product is ready to be photographed. The lens work and cropping has sharpened my photography skills. Shared interests that continue to evolve into this surprising collaboration keep relationshipsFab vital and very much alive in a society where divorce is sadly more the norm than the exception. I looked at the final product and thought that it symbolically tells a visual story of our relationship when two creative souls collaborate using “The Power of Two,” a song written by the Indigo Girls.
