Gold Leaf Landscapes






I have been
very 
fortunate

to have contributed to 
since 
2005









they have kindly published
my work and articles
in 
Somerset Studio
Sew Somerset
Haute Couture
Somerset Home
Somerset Gallery 

and next year
I will have a small article in
Somerset Apprentice








so it is a great pleasure
that my fine art
has illustrated the cover...










and I cannot tell you 
how elated
I was about that...
especially to see..
my signature
on the cover...


it doesn't happen everyday.....









if the
collages look familiar, 
it is because I had shown them to you as 
WIPs









I have to tell you that this is one of my favorite articles..
and I hope you will get a chance to check it out...
and take it home...








I am as always in great company
with my friends, fellow artists...
and 

if you haven't already been to their blogs..
then go blog hopping..
enjoy!

Somerset makes such high quality publications - your art graces their pages quite appropriately

Caterina Giglio said...

Chris Gray said...

Congratulations lovely lady!! Wish I could just go along to a bookstore and pick up a copy....the artwork looks gorgeous.😊

I was following along on your blog long before I first read any of your articles. When I saw the first one I remember (maybe 2007 or 2008) in Sew Somerset, I had to pick up every one after that. I have learned so much from your articles, and you have given so much insight into dyeing fabrics and such.

I must admit, these paper pieces are not like your more subtle pale and white offerings I'm used to seeing. These are bold and dark and gorgeous. Congratulations, dear Caterina. You definitely deserve the cover.

Jo Murray said...

Congratulations Caterina! You do wonderful work and deserve whatever recognition you get.

Kerri Jean said...

congratulations, Caterina. I have been a fan and visitor for several years, but do not comment often. I love your work - both visual and narrative.

Oh E, thanks so much, so happy you enjoy the words too.. I always look forward to the little articles... you are right about the color palette, and I really enjoyed the bold black and white graphics! x

Caterina Giglio said...

Congratulations on being a "cover girl". Sew Somerset has been my favorite publications since it first came out. I'm in this same issue, and I've added your blog to my sidebar.

Now, for more exploring on your blog.

How wonderful and fitting. Must get a copy. Cat's work is quite wonderful, she is blossoming as well. All thes artists really. Love your color choices in these pieces. xox

suziqu's thread works said...

As Seth says - a well deserved honour - well done Cat! Even the cover looks inspirational. I love every page from what I can see here - such a pity we can't get that magazine here in Australia at least where I live.
You are an inspiration!
