Fabric On Wood!!!!!

Who knew that you could make amazing artwork with fabric and wood! A bit of a different combination...but oh what a delightful marriage!!! I came across this next feature artist, shortly after I opened my Etsy shop, in the Etsy Forums. I instantly became enthralled with her work, and my goal is to have one of her pictures one day.

In this quote from her Etsy profile, Shellie tells us a bit about herself and her art:
"Hi my name is Shellie Mitchell and for the past 8 years I have been creating artwork with fabric on wood blocks which I call "Fabric on Wood". I consider myself an expressionistic artist and I studied painting, printmaking and alloys in college. Somehow I strayed away from what I knew to my own unique technique that I love. I live in South Carolina with my husband, baby boy and 5 pets. My studio is in my home where I create each piece by hand.
Each piece is one of a kind and original- I may redo an image in different fabrics or medium but they will never be the same."

These are a few of my favorite Shellie pictures. Actually my favorites are the cats, but I will try to give an overview of her different subjects.

This one is very unique as the cat is drawn on the wood and then the background is fabric.
Very cool!

I love the colors, the shapes and of course..... the cats!!
2 Black Cats on a Hill

Beautiful!!!!!
Big Sweet Love

I had to choose this one because I drink green tea.
Green Tea for One

This is perfect in every way!!!
Petals In The Wind

For a very delightful time, get yourself a cup of your favorite drink and go spend some time in Shellie's shop.
