The Pixeladies- Deb and Kris, aka “The Pixeladies,” offer the following online classes: Beginning Photoshop Elements, Designing with PSE.
The Pixeladies are Deb Cashatt and Kris Sazaki. They’ve known each other for over thirty years and began their collaboration in 2003. Their studio consists of three computers, three printers, four sewing machines, a serger, and a small store’s worth of fabric and beads. They collaborate on their Pixeladies projects because they like the challenge of coming up with a single artistic vision from two distracted minds! Deb and Kris concentrate on telling stories in cloth, usually starting out manipulating images on the computer. But, you’ll also find them sitting around the table cutting words and phrases from magazines for their text quilts.
The Pixeladies’ first book, Furoshiki Fabric Wraps: Simple, Reusable, Beautiful, was published in 2012 by C&T Publishing. Their work has been exhibited and published nationally and internationally.The Pixeladies have been teaching Photoshop Elements in traditional classroom settings and online long enough to remember when Photoshop Elements first came on the market. They have brought their expertise and experience to the fiber world because they know the language fiber artists speak. They translate Photoshop-speak into coherent nuggets of information fiber artists will use in their creative endeavors.
