I noticed Jill Spurgin’s eyecatching work in a poster tucked in a stairway of my school.
Naturally I had to investigate.
She is having an Artist Reception here in San Diego.
Embroidery and Textiles
Friday November 19, from 5-8 PM
Prudential California Realty Building
890 West Washington St.
(corner of Washington & Goldfinch)
From the artist’s website:
My work has always been inspired by nature…and now nature has become an important part of the design process, as I start to incorporate into my embroidered pieces elements like grass, dried artichoke leaves, pebbles, seeds, nutshells and the bark of the paper birch tree, which is so beautifully designed by nature I can hardly improve on it! Southern California holds a bounty of natural expression waiting to be discovered. I enjoy a great deal of variety in my work, combining embroidery with a variety of mediums from painting on silk and batik to collage and quilting.
