At the Root of Jo Drueke’s Art

Jo-Drueke-BA15TJo Drueke recently shared the origins of her donation piece Going Deep:

Drueke: My inspiration for this piece actually came from a weed I pulled out of my garden!  The root system of this small plant fascinated me.  I  am experimenting with various paints on various fabrics and I selected canvas with watercolor to draw out the roots which I then thread sketched.  The addition of couched hand dyed fiber finished the work,  I thoroughly enjoyed this process.

My current works include thread sketching and/or couching specialty yarns and fibers.  I continue to experiment in both abstract and more realistic original designs.
