A John Muir Moment at 9300 feet

by Phyllis C. Binkley

Hemet, California

Hand dyed, needle felted, painted, raw-edge fabric collaged, machine stitched

Artist Statement:

Hiking in the ‘high country’ of Yosemite National Park is a passion that not only gives me inspiration for my fiber art pieces, but also feeds my soul and renews my spirit. As John Muir said, ‘Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in, where nature may heal and cheer and give strength to body and soul.”
