In this lecture/trunk show, I share how I moved from making traditional quilts to art quilting. I discuss the elements of design and my experiments with many techniques such as painting, printing and using alternative fabrics. I also discuss the importance of keeping art journals and how my journals support my ongoing practice. During the lecture, I share many examples of my art quilts, including ‘Story Work’ that expresses my cultural and family history.
- Traditional to Modern – My first leaps!
- Elements of an art quilt – a loose definition
- My artistic inspirations
- My favorite processes for surface design
- Working in Series: Abstract Works and Story Works
