Shaunna's Big Day


My beautiful niece Shaunna graduated from high school this past Friday afternoon. I'm so proud of Shaunna and her many accomplishments. She, as well as my other niece and nephews are often the subjects of many portrait quilts and paintings I've done. Since "Ms Shaunna" is a such a "fashionista", I thought she would appreciate a specially designed denim jacket featuring a quilted photo of herself predominantly featured on the back. I was right, she loved it! It's a thread painted ink painted image of Shaunna. Her hais is felted with alpaca fibers. Here's a quick photo of Shaunna posing with her quilted jacket as well as a close-up of it just below. Check them out! Living creatively, Santeena
