Genevieve Guadalupe – Country – Flora/Fauna
For my final project of the series, I decided to represent the fauna and flora of the altiplano in the Andes of Peru. Both the alpaca (fauna) and the cantuta flower (flora) can only thrive at high altitude. My interpretation is of the lake Titikaka at the elevation of 4000 meters, with the typical cantuta flowers and the alpacas.
Materials and technique: cotton fabrics, cotton batting, printmaking ink, poly thread, cotton embroidery floss. Machine pieced, machine quilted, raw edge applique, hand printed, hand embroidered.
