Serendipitous Fabric Art works

Manuela got into the studio to work on some small fabric art pieces.  She paints, sews and works to create fabric pieces that she then adds found items, beading, appliqué, etc to create an art composition.  Most times Manuela does not have a perceived idea other than a general theme before she begins to work.  She chooses and places and juxtapositions things until the composition emerges -almost serendipitously.

Here is a small finished piece and a new art piece stretched and held in place by clamps until the glue sets up.

Embellishments (time pieces) have been added to a portion of a background cloth that has been 
painted upon.
