By using the ancient techniques of feltmaking and silk painting, Karasek-Needles feels connected to the generations of men and women who have come before her-- a thread binding the old with the new.
Inspired by themes of religion, daily life, and ethnic heritage, her art is an expression of the common people, not the product of art movements.
Karasek-Needles strives to incorporate texture, line, color, pattern, form, and rhythm into each fiber piece and in doing so tells a story that reaches out to the generations.
