Serena Brooks: textile art

 

The danger in embellishing one’s textile art is that everything else starts to look flat in comparison. All of my work speaks texture, but these pieces called out for MORE! In these pieces, you will find various types of beads, buttons and yarn, in addition to lots of decorative hand and machine stitching.
