Living This Creative Life

I have two favorite quotes. The first one is by Emile Zola, "If you asked me what I came into this world to do, I would tell you that I came to live out loud". I don't know who the second one is by, but it goes like this, "If you're not living on the edge then you might as well jump". Both of these sentiments sum up my personal philosophy of this experience we call life on earth. Enjoy!

Continuing on with my Sculptural Quilt Series

Here is the latest installment in my current series, Sculptural Quilts.

It's the 9th finished piece and its the largest. It has a more complex coloration. I used more than 20 varieties of paint color, both matte and Lumiere.

It sits on a blue violet Dupioni silk background which I heavily quilted with 16 different stitch designs. It was very fun to do and i think I'm getting better and better at the painting portion. I'm now working on some very small pieces and a large triptych to add to the series.

Thanks for visiting,

Hi your work and inspiration. I'm trying to get several people from my rather conservative and traditional quilt guild to join me on a 15 month journey in art quilt explorations. Your incredible skill and artistry makes me all the more excited to get these people (men and women) to free their creative spirits.
