I love the concept of “place” and my preferred subject matter is the landscape. My previous career as a cartographer has been useful for my fiber art, since both require understanding how people view and interpret color, pattern and symbols. Currently my work focuses on exploring what makes fiber art unique: texture, freedom of shape of the “canvas” (not limited to a rectangle or straight edges), and employing three rather than two dimensions.
I create art quilts, dimensional thread jewelry and sculptures, and mixed media sculptures. My work is cataloged on my website and I have a shop here on Artizan Made with a shopping cart: https://www.artizanmade.com/vendor/doughty-designs/
