I use photographic references to create representational portraits of an occasion among friends, a glimpse of a relationship and natural daily life, or a celebration of family; my artistry presents memories. Celebrating memories with a glimpse of a personal relationship and natural daily life exemplifies my work. My goal, when executing a piece, is to bring a photograph to life, not just recreate… the image.

With each batik fabric differing, the tangled pattern is always a mystery. The irregularity of batiks lends itself to the shapes I use in my layering technique. Variances in pattern cause shadow and highlight, giving my work its characterizing appearance. The threadwork blends the stitching around the edges. Whether it’s a couple sitting at a waterfront, an old man reading his bible, or a family portrait, I enjoy capturing a moment.

    Updated information about Maggie Dillon Designs πŸ™‚
    Maggie Dillon is a textile/fiber artist, working exclusively in batik fabric. Maggie uses photographic references to create representational portraits in fiber.

    Artist Statement:
    I love the feel, depth of color, even the smell of batik fabric and the ability to lose myself piecing my works with tiny pins going every which way. Working with hand-dyed batiks give results that can be challenging and pleasantly unpredictable.
    I work to bring back a calm moment that is meaningful and ordinary at the same time. Look at a still, candid moment and imagine what is taking place. You can almost add your own story to the images like characters in a book.
