Artist Information for Sandy Gregg

The inspiration for my work comes from the interaction of color, place and nature.  I create fabric with dye and paint and love the unexpected results that frequently occur. I often work on a number of pieces simultaneously (sometimes working in series) because I work intuitively and need time to study the work on the design wall before deciding how to proceed to the next step. I sometimes add text as another layer, which can provide texture and meaning.  I look for a balance of light, line, color, space and form.
