Hi. My name is Julie B Booth (aka Threadborn). I’ve admired the alphabets from ALaW 2012 and thought that I’d play along this year. I’m primarily a fiber artist, though I started my professional life as a graphic designer. I’m probably best known for my non-traditional cloth dolls and more recently for my hand painted and printed fabrics. In fact, after winning a grant from my fiber guild in 2010, I’ve been spending a great deal of time in my kitchen concocting fabric resist recipes. This year, I decided that the kitchen held all sorts of possibilities for fabric surface design and started an online newsletter to share my discoveries. In this recent post, I have a recap of 2012 so you have an idea of what I’m all about.
I’m very excited to be joining such a creative group of artists. I’ve already been thinking about what I’d like to try doing for this year’s alphabets. I expect that this is going to be a lot of fun and look forward to getting to know each of you and your artwork over the course of this year. I can’t wait to see how each of us interprets the Peace alphabet!
