Pensive Girl (12) is a Mixed Media Stitched Collage.
The girl with red shoes keeps warm in her grey coat as she gazes into the distance. She has a vintage look, but is meant to be timeless. Surrounded by movement, the girl remains still, lost in thought.
Created in layers with quilting details, the textile art piece combines elements of both a collage and an art quilt. The collage is created in fabric, thread and paper and then quilted with light batting. Threads are left long, loose and frayed for added texture and energy. And then, the red shoes.
