I have been a bit remiss in failing to post the news that I was profiled in this fabulous book by Martha Sielman, executive director of Studio Art Quilt Associates, Inc. The book came out late last year and includes the work of more than 100 fantastic artists among whom I am proud to be included.
From the the publisher’s blurb:
These engaging works of art represent a range of styles across the abstract art spectrum. 300 gorgeous art quilts, bursting with color and excitement, capture the work of 124 major quilt artists from 18 countries. In-depth interviews with 29 of the artists help us understand their inspirations, their techniques, and their challenges. Learn about how Denyse Schmidt makes her color choices. Find out how Fumiko Nakayama first discovered the mola techniques for which she is famous. Discover why Sue Benner is drawn to plaids and why Deidre Adams likes old books. Participating artists come from Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Israel, Italy, Japan, Latvia, Netherlands, Northern Ireland, Russia, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, Taiwan, the UK, and across the US.
