Portrait by Libby BulloffAbout

I am a Seattle illustrator who has combined my expertise in sewing, drawing and painting in a unique mixed media process. The creation of each piece of art is a narrative – a gradual meditative synthesis of disparate media. Pencil drawings are applied to fabrics of varying patterns and textures, then cut into intricate shapes and collaged together. Saturated hues of paint and ink are applied as splashes, drips, and areas of detailed rendering. Images are completed with linear elements of embroidery, culminating in a highly stylized interpretation of reality full of luminous colors and textural depth.
