Turning Over a New Leaf: Fabric Constructions by Lisa Flowers Ross features bright and bold abstract artworks using hand died fabric. Drawing upon themes of nature and daily observation, fabric and thread is transformed into simple shapes with an emphasis on line, color and composition.

Her artwork has been exhibited in solo, group and juried exhibitions nationally and are included in private and public collections.
