Quilled Starry Night Abstract

I created a lot of abstracts in 2017 and of them all, this is perhaps my favorite. I love the color combination of golden yellows and deep blues. Although I call it Quilled Starry Night Abstract, I never started out with the intention of creating anything related to Starry Night; it just happened.


This piece is 8″ x 10″ and mounted on fiber-infused artboard. It was created entirely with white, standard weight 1/4″ quilling strips.

To achieve the colors, I created very large tight coils and held them together with pins on my art board. Then I dribbled alcohol inks over the top of the coils and allowed it to sink in to various depths. As you can see, when the tight coils are unrolled, it makes for quite a beautiful result.
