Fabric Mosaic Art

Empress Theodora

fabric mosaic


After considerable thought I finally settled on a design to provide a finished border for my fabric mosaic of Theodora.  It seemed fitting that Theodora, a symbol of the power and glory of western civilization , should be framed within the softly scalloped edges of eastern arches.  This is meant to point to the exotic and complex blend of western and eastern influences which shaped the Byzantine Empire.

For a close-up view of the work, you can view Theodora on RemnantWorksYoutube.

        Thank you! And I think you got the color thing just right in this work – the right “palette” sort of. Well done!

  4. Yes, color can be very challenging. I am limited to the fabrics I can find. It’s not like paint that you can mix and blend until you get the desired shade. I have to work with what’s available in my local market. Thank goodness I live in a place with lots of fabric resources.
