My inspiration for this quilt was a photograph of a black Angus calf on my family ranch. As I digitally manipulated and painted the image, it occurred to me that I had made a genetically (digitally) modified organism. Traces of the original was apparent, but it was now its' own unique creature.

Fractal Pattern - Fast Cars, Rainy Night
Fractal Pattern - Fast Cars, Rainy Night

Available - 40" x 40"

Artist Statement: Fractals are the most basic pattern of all things that occur in nature. They define the geometry of things we see, and things we do not see in the natural world. They are evident in many forms from our DNA and coronary circulation system, to fern fronds and snowflakes, and even supernovas. This particular computer-generated fractal mimics the pattern of water reflecting color, light, and motion. One can imagine fast, shiny cars racing down a wet, moonlit street.

Materials/Techniques:  Textile Painting (digital manipulation of original fractal, paint, cotton fabric, batting, and machine stitching).

Design Source: I have an affinity for wildflowers; I love the "bloom where you are planted" spirit.  This quilt is a result of wondering how a creature would look that was raised only on wildflowers.
