Kate Childers - Dirty Hands, Shining Face
Kate Childers works with direct printing her digital images and offers her images printed on either canvas paper or silk. She describes "Dirty Hands, Shining Face" this way: "I used my own fabric and steam set the ink. The face, the hands and the butterfly were all printed on my computer. I put my daughter's hands right on the scanner and scanned them in before working on them in Photoshop. The branches on the side are kimono silk, put in backwards to tone down the color. The dark pieces are also kimono silk - the red background is cotton."
