Artist’s Statement:
When I saw the woven dragon design, I felt a garment coming on. The fabric also had a strip of two different overall prints. One print was used for the back of the jacket and binding, the other for the collar. The hand quilting is Sashiko. The five-toed dragon is a Chinese Dragon. It’s a symbol of good luck with its breath bringing divine energy, thus the name of the piece “Spiritual Dragon.”
