For the last two decades, Marcia has honed and perfected her techniques for creating unique pieces of hand-dyed and hand-painted fabrics. She brings a completely new vocabulary of color to the quilting world.

From her studio on Whidbey Island in the beautiful Pacific Northwest, Marcia starts with a blank canvas; a bolt of muslin, fabric dyes, and the primary colors in silkscreen paints. The world is her palette---when she sets to work, she gathers colors, images and objects from everywhere. Anything that catches her eye outdoors or in the studio becomes an artist's tool: pine cones, spoons, brushes, homemade stamps, and bamboo pens. She applies paint with abandon, exhausting the cups of color, trying every combination. Each piece of fabric is a fresh and innovative arrangement of color, form, and texture. Bringing together these stand-alone pieces, her fabric collections are harmonious groupings that represent a central idea or concept. She draws her themes from the seasons or her travels or sometimes simply a new texture found in her environment.

Marcia is a frequent mainstay at the country's most prestigious fabric shows and art fairs, always with a colorful, enticing booth that matches its artwork in creativity and design. She debuts at Windham Fabrics with two exciting collections: Palette and Mosaic. Check back often for the latest from this wonderful designer and learn more about Marcia, her fabric collections and artwork, at her website www.MarciaDerse.com.
