Original textile art by Suzanne Connor
All of these exclusive pieces are built on wool/rayon with high quality 100% cotton fabrics. Every single one is individually hand cut, appliqued for distinction, and intricately detailed with delicate rayon threads using a technique similar to free motion stitchery. A layer of exceptionally heavy stabilizer is custom cut for every piece and then the piece is backed with another layer of wool/rayon. The layers are then stitched together and the edges are cut by hand. Finally, velcro hook dots are applied to the finished back. Completed pieces are then packaged with corresponding velcro loop dots and instructions for hanging.
Suzanne Connor is a 4th generation NH fiber artist who has created an original line of textile art. Currently, she works in two distinct collections. Inspired by a magic lady, Christina’s Ocean is a collection of sea life created using an original technique developed by the artist. Preservation of the world’s oceans is critical to the survival of many species, including man. Suzanne chose fish, seals, turtles, corals, seagrass and much more to highlight the variety of creatures in the underwater habitat.
