Abstracts

If you are curious, here is a blog post: How to Gallery-Wrap Textile Paintings.

Abstract art includes an openness of interpretation. Your view of the work and your experience complete it.

My abstracts are original paintings on silk or cotton, then stitched by hand or machine to add tactile values and textures that your hands will love to touch.

Abstract textile paintings are usually gallery-wrapped on wooden stretchers, ready to hang. Occasionally, they are tapestry-style wall hangings. This is indicated in the title description.

The abstract textile paintings on this page are for sale. 

Because they are originals, they each have a "Buy Now"button attached which allows you to enter your credit card and shipping information. (There is no shopping cart because each sale is unique, as each piece is unique.) We ship as soon as we receive payment.

If a piece is currently traveling or submitted to an exhibition, it is still for sale, but can only be received at the end of the journey. So when we cannot ship a piece right away, the Buy Now button is removed to avoid confusion.

Please call +1.530.692-9012 to chat with the artist.
