My name is Laura Fox-Wallis, I am a fiber artist and art educator living in Fort Mill, South Carolina. In 2004, I began to explore the diverse effects of silk painting and found a strong connection with the fluid movement and brilliant colors of the dye. Using medium-weight Habutai silk, steam-fixed silk dyes and resist, I layer color to create form and texture, counting missteps as design elements that are sometimes more beautiful and interesting than the original concept. Most recently, I have been experimenting with stitching, exploring the idea of creating dimensional layers of line to emphasize rhythm and movement throughout my silks. I am fueled by nature, the breadth of colors, textures, and organic shapes and forms. Therefore, my works are the mixture of abstraction and reality which reflects my particular experiences in life. I find that fiber, specifically silk and embroidery, is the best medium to do that.
