Artist Information for Lenore Crawford
Using fabric as my art medium over the past few years has allowed me to take my work to a new level. I am able to achieve dramatic color, texture, and warmth in scenes created from photos I have taken. Once my fiber art is designed I use a tiny amount of fabric paint to add fine detail and shading producing more depth. Creating places to dream about and escape to in fiber is my passion.Images scroll down to view all
Emma in the Looking Glass39" H X 53" W
My friends` granddaughter was looking into my mom`s lily pond when I took this picture. Using my raw edged fusing technique I recreated this scene using dozens of different fabrics and a little fabric paint to add detail and shading. I love to use fabric with its texture and warmth to create moments in life.
Capturing Brittany49"H X 53"W   Architecture in northern France is different than other places there. The dark stone buildings have a rustic look and well suited for Northcott Stonehenge printed fabrics.
Enter My Sanctuary42"H X 56"W   I love the old architecture in France. This is the entrance to the priest's house in a village there. Each leaf was created individually and I found the perfect fabric to create the hydrangeas with.
Le Poet Laval I43"H X 34"W   This is another French architectural design using many Northcott Stonehenge fabrics. My raw edge fusing technique is perfect for creating detailed architecture.
Port of Cassis48"H x 53"w   The villages of France have great beauty and color. This small port on the Mediterranean Sea was glowing at dusk with the colorful buildings and reflections in the water.
