A Huge Honour to be Featured in Artistry in Fiber Vol 2 – Sculpture

In September 2015 I was contacted by E. Ashley Rooney & Anne Lee, who asked if I would be interested in being featured in their newest series of books for Schiffer Publishing, Exploring Fiber Art. The three volumes would cover Wearable Art, Wall Hangings; and In Three Dimensions, & anticipated including about 75 artists in each volume…

…Of course I replied with a positive, Yes….

E. Ashley Rooney has produced a long and successful line of books, which  can be reviewed at Amazon and Barnes & Noble.  Anne Lee, her coauthor, has worked with Ashely on several books and coauthored Encaustic Art in the Twenty-first Century (due late 2015).  Schiffer’s beautiful coffee-table books are aimed primarily at galleries, artists, art lovers, and collectors.

About the coauthors: Living in Lexington, Massachusetts, E. Ashley Rooney and Anne Lee had been casually acquainted for many years. They first volunteered together in 2010, curating an art show at Cary Memorial Library. Other shared art events followed, and both their friendship and thier writing partnership evolved. Together, they have edited Encaustic Art in the Twenty-First Century (Schiffer) as well as this exciting series on fiberart. As coauthors, they balance each other and offer different experiences and perspectives: Ashley is the author of over fifty books, specialising in contemporary art and architecture; and Anne researched, curated, and wrote about exhibitions at Vose Galleries in Boston. Exploring fiber art’

…And so, in early June 2017, I was thrilled to received confirmation that  Artistry in Fiber Vol 2 – Sculpture was being released… A beautifully presented book, featuring 78 of today’s most noteworthy fibre Artists & 500 photos of their work… I’m not good at blowing my own trumpet but I can’t let this opportunity pass without saying…. What a great honour it is to be included in such an amazing array interesting & inspirational Fibre Artists & their diverse use of materials & techniques… ‘Artistry in Fiber Vol 2 – Sculpture‘ is a book that will fascinate & enthuse anyone remotely interested in the fibre arts…
