Jan Holzbauer, Jillian, Thread Painting, 10x8" 2009
Jan Holzbauer will attend a four-day painting on fabric workshop in southern California with the help of an Oklahoma Visual Arts Coalition Education Grant. She has experience painting images onto fabric and in quilting, but said she has yet to find a satisfactory method of painting images. She hopes the workshop will help her enhance the top of her quilts with stitches and thread panting.
