Rust-Tex Koi

I've been looking at the Rust-Tex website since enjoying their display at Festival of Quilts and found this lovely piece of work, Koi.  Here's the detail of one fish: 
I can't seem to find the name of the artist but here are the notes:
During the winter months I am driven from my outdoor dye studio by snow and low temperatures. I spend winter using the fabric I rust dyed in the summer. These koi were stenciled onto a fat eighth of Rust-Tex using a commercially produced stencil. I used the colors Bronze and Pewter from the Lumiere line of Jacquard brand fabric paints.  11"x18"
There is more to enjoy here:
I found this so inspiring I thought you would enjoy it too!

  4. Thanks for posting a link to my Rust-Tex website. The Koi pieces was made by me, as are all the pieces in the Gallery at Rust-Tex.Com. The quilts in the Rust-Tex Collection were made by various artists. I had 112 entries from all around the world. The judges had a hard time getting it down to 25.
