My sister and her decorator have finally decided where in her home to hang this piece! She loves how from a distance it looks like a painting and up close it reveals it's awe inspiring surprise of skill and craftsmanship! They finally settled on a wall near her son's room because he loves the piece.

Seeing in Fabric is textile art through the eyes and hands of Jamie Langhoff and her 1968 Singer sewing machine

I began creating my own version of fabric applique artwork in 2004. At first, I began creating fabric applique "wearable art" on t-shirts and sweatshirts. My work was very popular, but because of the price point of t-shirts, I was always having to limit my creative potential. After 5 years of making wearable art, I was totally burnt out! Part of me wanted to evolve the format into wall art instead, but I had absolutely NO idea where to start. Plus, being burnt out, I really needed a break!

I decided instead to focus on finishing my Bachelor's degree in Philosophy.

Then I decided to explore the world of organic farming.

Then I decided to move to a city, because I craved a more exciting, urban lifestyle. I chose Washington D.C. because it is very small I fell in love with the intricate details of the early 20th century "Row Houses" in the residential neighborhoods.

In early 2011, after nearly 3 years of being on hiatus from any kind of textile, fabric, or sewing of any kind, I began re-exploring my fabric applique work, but in a different way. I began creating wall art.

It was so scary at first, but I fell in love with the process of creating fabric art all over again!

Ever since I made the decision to create to "textile wall art," my process has grown exponentially!

And I am still growing and changing and evolving!

It feels like every single time I create a new piece of artwork, I am trying something different, challenging myself in a new way.
