Janet Edmonds creates amazing textile pieces inspired by the artists Chuck Close, Van Gogh, Kandinsky, Matisse, Hundertwasser, John Piper and Giorgio Morandi. She outlines each artist s work, sharing what inspires her, then creates a series of artistic projects using various media and techniques, exploring this inspiration. These works lead in each case to a stitching project, with a stitch sampler to introduce each one. Janet s finished textile pieces include stitched squares, a portrait, a purse, a landscape, a box-framed 3D piece, embroidered boxes, stitched panels with castings and more. The flexibound format makes this a practical workbook for artists as well as a rich source of inspiration and ideas.
