Observe and Discover
art quilt by Barbara Barrick McKie

36.75" w. x 37" h.
I was a scientist, looking to discover new antibiotic producing microbes. Studying art opened my eyes to nature’s details. Computer science studies helped me transfer my photographic images to fabric. This work represents scientific studies up close. Included are: botany, oceanography, entomology, geology, ornithology, archeology, and chemistry.
Disperse dyed polyester fabrics printed by the artist and hand dyed cottons by the artist. Machine pieced, machine quilted.
