Victoria Bartling

"Pure textiles-cotton, silk, wool, paper-are the foundation materials for a composition that is pleasing and interesting to the eye. With a penchant for orderly pattern, fascination with texture, and love of complementary color, I assemble material, arrange, rearrange, develop layer upon layer and embellish with beads and thread until the piece says to me, 'I'm finished'."
