Customer Work - Carol Deards
Carol Deards is a fiber artist specializing in pet portraits. Her newest piece it Ringo and here's her description:
I love dogs. When I saw a photo of this dog I knew I had to create a piece featuring his face. This portrait was created using a fusible thread raw edge appliqué technique. I love Vicki's hand-dyed fabrics and so was delighted to find that one of her gradient fabrics set off this dog's face perfectly. Ringo was born with a cleft palate. With dedicated care, he survived and is now a happy, active 2 yea old and the light of his family's life.
Carol used the Envy Gradient for this piece.
Just so we don't have a cat fight about over favoritism to dogs, Carol also makes cat portraits. Here's one that she made a couple of years ago using the Pine Forest Gradient as the background. You can check out more of Carol's work, and contact her about your own pet portrait, on her website.

Lovely work by Carol. The gradients make wonderful backgrounds for art quilts. Of course they are gorgeous all by themselves.
