Have you smiled today?
The tierneycreates “fusion of textiles and smiles” stories are here to bring a smile to your face or brighten your existing smile.
I use two mediums to tell stories: 1) My fiber/textile creations; and 2) the written word via by tierneycreates Blog.
My fiber/textile art is created with a single or ongoing story in mind. These stories originate from my life experiences, observations, struggles, dreams and hopes. The earth and its inhabitants are very precious to me and I want to do work that contributes to environmental conservation efforts. I primarily use recycled textiles in my art to include recycled clothing, textile manufacturing samples and scraps, and discards from others quilt-making. My focus is on improvisational design: The fabric itself and creative inspiration guide me to allow the piece to evolve organically and become what it wants to become.
Currently I have four (4) story series for my art: 1) Color Stories, 2) Recycled Denim Stories, 3) Stories My Father Told Me, and 4) Nature Stories. You can view my Art Quilt Story Series on my page – Art Quilt Stories.
The tierneycreates Blog discusses my artistic journey as well as the the many aspects of a “Crafter’s Life” including sources of creative inspiration, what’s on my design wall, quality of life, quilting retreats, artistic growth, outside adventures, books that inspire me, and all things related to handmade textile crafts.
Fusing textiles & smiles,
