B. J. Adams/Art in Fiber

Summer Flowers triptych, Machine Embroidery by B. J. Adams, 14"x32"

Free-motion sewing machine embroidery, as a technique, is an extension of my drawing and painting life. The sewing machine became my brush, hundreds of colors of thread have become my paint, and textiles are my ‘support’ to use a painting synonym.

My art work has been commissioned and created for public buildings and private residences and shown in museums and galleries in the USA and abroad. 

Artist's Statement:  While working on one piece, another idea often emerges, and it is this constant, stimulating flow that causes my work to evolve, to create new series, and to seek different themes. The unusual or commonplace materials and techniques I use, the focus required by the slow working process of this art, and the infinite available subjects, keep my work ever-changing, challenging, and always motivating.

“Drive a nail home and clinch it so faithfully that you can wake up in the night and think of your work with satisfaction,- a work at which you would not be ashamed to invoke the Muse”
-Henry David Thoreau

In our case, it would be the needle or other fiber tool. Drive it home! And, we all thank you for your words, left here to these good folks. Invoke your Muse!
