Mixed-Media Sari Fabric Art



Mixed-Media Sari Fabric Art: Birds on Green Trellis


Way back, when I first opened my Etsy shop I used to make a series called sari art. Using watercolor, I sought to capture the colors, textures and motifs of Indian saris on paper.  Indian saris were a
great source of inspiration and I had a lot of fun making sari art. Then I moved on to other things. 

Recently, I felt a renewed interest in doing them again. This time, I did it a little differently.  The colors and textures of the sari became the foundation upon which other patterns and collaged images were grafted. This added a greater dimension to the art. I am very happy with the effect.

They are now available here.
