Welcome to this basic website of visual artist K. Joy Ballard Peters.

The applique technique, often described as "painting with fabric", is one used most often. Here commercially produced fabric is cut, redesigned, and sewn by machine as the artist creates new images.
K. Joy Ballard Peters also uses the collage technique, popularized by renown artist Romare Bearden. One must look carefully to see exactly which images and colors have been replaced to create new scenes. Illusions and surprise textures may appear without warning.
Enjoy the creativity of these works.
