Dundas, Ontario textile artist Lorraine Roy.
Lorraine Roy:"For just over 20 years, Lorraine Roy has been working with textiles in non-traditional ways. Originally devoted to hand-embroidery, she later developed a unique form of machine collage that permits her to 'paint' with fabric. By using a unique mixture of techniques like sewing, collage, embroidery and quilting, she integrates thousands of bits of fabric and threads with fine transparent tulle and machine stitching. The sumptuous results combine her passion for science and spirituality while exploring the earthy origins and surprising versatility of fabrics and threads" http://www.lroyart.com/index.php
