Katherine Sands' Textile Work

"In creating art, I find the elements of nature to be some of the most interesting subjects in my environment.  The colors, shapes, lines, and textures of trees, leaves, flowers, rocks, and even weeds are visually stimulating to me and I employ them liberally. I do most of my work in an abstract fashion with dyes and paints on cotton and silk. Creating my own cloth is where I prefer to start when creating a work of art.  It is important to me that each piece is as original as I can make it. I do not usually work in realism; it is far more interesting to work in an abstract or suggestive mode, using the materials and elements to give impressions or allude to a theme.  I hope to give the viewer pause as he/she ponders interpretations of my subject matter.
