DEANNA GAUTHIER WEARABLES
When you love texture, colour, & quality, have a playful nature, get bored easily doing the same thing twice, a trip to the local ‘thrift store’ to repurpose my ‘lucky finds’, a search thru every fabric store, including the ‘bargain bin’, can lead to the creation of interesting combinations of 'ONE OF A KIND' wearable art. As a visual artist, there is always a theme about each quilted reversible vest or coat, which are made with new chintz & all garments embellished with my handmade buttons.
