Putting Pieces Together“Relationships draw us to symbols that express a heart language.” says Suzanna. “Often these images evoke our longing for understanding of the world around us, whether remote or personal Common textiles used as medium can evoke memories of our earliest experiences, often unconsciously. We incite our own healing process as we connect to modern icons of portraiture.”

Suzanna is a native Californian who studied commercial art at The Burnley School in Seattle, WA. Recent studies have included textile arts and portrait painting with Kirk Miller.

“Putting Pieces Together” by Suzanna Bond

SusannaBond

Suzanna Bond had an opportunity this past fall to make a small piece for a local cafe. The cafe is run by volunteers who are members of her church and all proceeds go to compassion projects locally and globally.  The design for Putting Pieces Together was inspired by a photograph Suzanna took in a sewing workshop which was part of the business skills department of Missions of Hope International in Nairobi, Kenya.

“I start out by tracing the photo with pencil. The photocopied enlargement of the pencil sketch creates a nice character to the lines and helps me loosen up a bit. Working from a sketch helps me to get away from a mere reproduction of a photo to something that takes on a life of it’s own. I make pattern pieces with tracing paper and cut them from the right side of pre-fused fabric, fusing onto the batting. Taking a class with Patty Hawkins got me jump started on these techniques. The facial features were machine quilted over a light pencil sketch. A small piece that was really a joy to make,” shared Suzanna.
