Topic: My Creative Process
Karen will share the influences on her creative journey. How she uses photos for inspiration, works on the design aspect of her work and plans her time so she’s doing what she truly loves to do.
I’ve been sewing since I was six years old, participated in a 4-H Clothing club growing up and then moved on to a Home Economics degree with a major in Clothing and Textiles. So it’s not surprising that I eventually found my way to quilting. Now that I’m retired from teaching Home Economics, I’m caught up in the fun of experimenting with all the techniques in the world of art quilting. The streams I enjoy exploring are dyeing fabric, surface design, especially with thickened dyes, collage and incorporating paper. Although I’m trying to become more abstract in my work I’ve always been drawn to circles and leaves. The processes involved contribute to a fascinating journey.
