Born To Be Wild

Wild Dog or Painted Wolf are my favourite animals out of Africa. Here are three pups created with fabric collage and free motioned details with thread painting. Young pups walk ahead of the adult dog in a changing environment. Diminishing rapidly in numbers with disease, it is crucial to look after them before a crisis point. The webbed holes represent climate change and its effect on nature’s wonderful creatures. My main picture is layer-up with batting and a backing for free motion quilting.
