Martine House - Fabric Art
Because of the immense diversity in their sizes, shapes, materials and textures, beads offer endless creative possibilities. Whether I start with a photograph as a guide to a specific color palette or a large bead/stone around which I design my piece, I have the most wonderful time searching through my beads to find the best selection and the most appropriate stitches. Working creatively is also a good way to overcome anxiety about the problems and violence in our world as well as my own purpose in this life.
For many years I worked as a studio artist and educator sharing my techniques. I used embroidery, quilting, beading and various mixed-media techniques to achieve unique textures on my often-three dimensional pieces. In recent years my focus has changed to working uniquely with bead embroidery to create jewelry and small wall pieces.
