These fabric poems by Alyce McDonald are unique collages of transferred photos and a variety of fabrics, which hang from clear acrylic rods. Each piece contains a quote that the artist feels resonates with the poem; some are thought-provoking and some are just meant to make you smile.

Alyce McDonald (Louisville, KY) worked for several years in the fashion fabrics industry where her love of fiber, texture, and surface design led her to find her voice as an artist. McDonald uses everything from antique textiles to interesting papers, photos, and vintage ephemera to create her pieces. She states, "When I begin working, I let each piece unfold itself. I'm never sure where it will end, but I always know when I am there."
