The term synthesis (from the ancient Greek σύνθεσις σύν [with] and θεσις [placing]) is used in many fields, usually to mean a process which combines together two or more pre-existing elements resulting in the formation of something new.
My art quilts are a combination of ingredients and materials; fabric, acrylic paint, buttons, beads—those are the physical materials. Each one starts with an idea and then a drawing. In between all of this is a process of creating. The final product is a synthesis of it all.
