About Art Quilts of Nevada

What is an Art Quilt …

There are two definitions of what my quilts are.
(1) Using both traditional and modern quilting techniques, I use photographic images and computer generated images to create art pieces. I base my quilt art on my photo imagery and ideas from computer generated images and may traditional patterns to support the overall design the art. I regard the quilt canvases that I create as one-of-a-kind fabric paintings which I then complete as dimensional fabric art.
(2) Using both traditional and modern quilting techniques, the second form of my art quilts, I refer to as family photo quilts. The family photo quilts are made primarily from the images of family photos sewn and quilted together into a personal family fabric art piece. My quilt, Moments in Time II was the first quilt of this type that I made

Your family photos, those special events or even everyday activities, your own ‘moments in time’, have been sitting in albums or boxes and may be rarely seen. Now you can show your photos in a new and creative way, as quilted fiber art. No matter how many family photos or how few that you may have or have access too, they can be used to create a custom quilt or wall hanging that only you will have. This is also a way of turning your photos of family, vacation/travel, special occasions or special interest into your own fiber art. Whether for yourself, your family or as a gift, this is a great way to make use of and display family photographs and create a unique quilt can be passed from generation to generation.

A Description of my Work

The pleasure of crafting art quilts comes from the creative flow that all artists experience who lose themselves in their chosen mediums.
The quilts that I enjoy making the most are the family photo quilts, every quilt made is a one of the kind creation that the images used help guide me to quilts final design. As for my image art quilts, I love working with the way images, thread and colors interact as well as the texture of the completed quilted piece.

For the family photo quilts made by Art Quilts of Nevada is fabric art that can created from a collage of family photos. The number of photos used will depend on the size of the photos used in the quilt and the size of the quilt/wall hanging. Each quilt is individually designed and custom made my me. Your quilt is made using images (from your photographs) and I have found that there is a strong emotional impact when people who know what the images are on the quilt see them in the artwork.
