Genevieve Guadalupe – Water

Water is a fascinating theme to me since I cannot conceive any part of life without water. Not only does it surround us but we and everything around us is part water. Even though I am very concerned about the environmental water issues I decided to show the beauty of water, with simple lines and the light it reflects.

Technique: pieced background, woodblock print, machine quilted.

Materials: cotton fabrics, poly/cotton fabrics, hand dyed cotton fabrics, poly/cotton threads, poly batting.
