Nurturing – Medium is the message


Joan Sowada creates contemporary artwork using the versatile and comforting medium of fabric. Most of her recent pieces are sewn by hand and explore concepts related to seasons and wishful healing (mending). Her artwork is sometimes abstract conceptual and sometimes figurative. Sowada uses a range of fabrics – recycled clothing, commercial cotton, and fabrics she has altered with paint, markers and oil pastels.
