Made by Beth Dunn, Seattle, WA
After graduating from the University of Washington, Beth studied printmaking and art history as a post graduate student. Recently she started to combine printmaking, fabric design, embroidery and quilt making processes. Beth’s work is process oriented, using word and image as a framework and, then, letting her imagination rule. Textiles were alway important to her from an early age. The process of working in a fabric medium brings back a playfulness and significant childhood memories.
