About this item
Hand dyed cotton, machine quilted
"I have always loved working with color. When I learned how to percentage dye fabrics, a very systematic method that involves precisely measuring fabric and dye, I was amazed by how many color variations are possible. This body of work satisfies the color nerd in me while also allowing me to create a vast quantity of dye recipes for use in other work."
Dimensions: 52" x 52"
"I grew up in Iowa as an only child to two very hard working, creative, nature loving parents. I learned how to sew in the 5th grade when my dad and I made a quilt out of our old shirts. In college, at Iowa State University, I studied engineering, Spanish, Portuguese, drawing, and printmaking before finally realizing my love of textiles in a yardage screen printing class. I earned an MFA in Textiles from the University of Kansas. Now I live in Kansas City where I am an Associate Professor at the Kansas City Art Institute and make loads of quilts. Most of my quilts are hand dyed and I love teaching others how to dye fabric. I teach workshops regularly around the US (I'm eager to travel abroad to teach - email me if you live somewhere cool and you want me to come there!). My book, Modern Color: An Illustrated Guide to Dyeing Fabric for Modern Quilts, was published in 2014. I also frequently show my work in galleries."
