I believe in the HEALING energy of COLOR. I also believe that my technical ability to work with fabric and thread is a gift. Inspiration comes from the MUSE who guides the use of color energy and shimmering threads of illumination, as each piece evolves. COMMISSIONS are welcomed! I am happy to customize a design to reflect your choice of colors. Please feel free to contact me to discuss your special requests .

After studying the color selection and auditioning fabrics and threads, a stencil was cut with the name 'LaMacchia'. This stencil was used to paint the design onto creme colored Ultrasuede fabric. Once the paint was set, the stitching began layering the fabrics into a 'quilt'. Next, the layers were attached to the background leather which was selected for its texture, color, weight, and relativity to the American Indian theme of the piece.
