We had a fabulous speaker today at my guild meeting: Chicago fiber artist, David L. Johnson. David is a fiber arts whirlwind; his pieces combine tapestry, beading and digital image transfer, as well as traditional craft such as crochet. Check out his website-Urban Wild to see all of his beautiful pieces.
David is a wonderful speaker: informative, funny and immensely creative. He did a great lecture. If you get the chance to hear him or see his work, take advantage of it
He was mobbed after the guild meeting with people buying his pieces. I purchased this amazing piece called, “Bryn Mawr Storm Drain” It combines digtal priniting on canvas, and beading; including the homemade twig beads that are David’s signature. It has already found a home on my breakfast area wall.
