Valentangles 2021


Every year around this time, my artwork focuses on the theme of hearts. Here are some of my tangled creations.

This heart is filled with sea waves, a pattern designed by Jinny Lu.

This next one is filled with frost flower by Karen Huen:

The next one is filled with walk the line by Chris Titus. As I was working on this, I expected it to come out looking like a double oval spiral; but instead, it looks sort of like angel wings. Happy accident:

I love grid patterns. Sometimes they look like quilt blocks to me; other times they look like tiles. This one is called heartangles by Vandana Krishna. I especially like the web design:

This heart is filled with another grid pattern, trellis by Alice Hendon:

The next one uses printemps, auras, stripes, and dots:

I used sprigs by Michele Beauchamp to form a heart:

And this one is my favorite. I adapted cosmic flower by Nicole Dreyer and shaped it into sort of a heart. To me it looks “hippy.”

If you’d like to see my Valentangles from previous years, here they are from 2020, 2019, 2018, and 2017.

Happy Valentine’s Day tomorrow, everyone. I hope you get to spend it with the one you love.
