"That Secret"  @Denise Havlan

  Denise Tallon Havlan is an award winning fiber artist from Plainfield, Illinois.   Her work has been displayed in art galleries, national and international exhibitions. Fundamentals of composition, color, and design combined with the technical skills in manipulating fabric bring a new dimension to the term “art quilt”. Denise allows each individual piece to determine its own creative process.
    Technical methods range from hand and machine applique, machine embroidery with the use of textile paints, dyes, inks and color pencil to alter and enhance fabrics. The “message” of a work often occurs without  pre-planning.  Since the actual construction process takes some time original ideas may develop further or change as the piece comes to life. Denise believes a greater depth of tactile complexity and realism is accomplished through the combination of hand painted fabric combined with self-altered commercial fabrics to realize the image.
