About Kathie

AugustQAself I’m a mixed media/textile artist living in my dream in northern Michigan.   I create wall art as well as some 3 dimension sculpture using fabrics and fibers as my “paint”.   Most of my work is nature themed but I am also intrigued by the human form.   My textile background includes clothing construction and home decoration.  In the mid 1990s I started making original art dolls which first connected me to other textile artists.  Over the past 5 or 6 years I’ve migrated into the “art quilt” world.  I dye and screen print my own fabric and combine them  with commercial fabrics of all kinds to create  visual texture.  I also like to include fibers, beads, buttons, stones and other objects when they are integral to the story.

I am a  member of the Fiber Artist Coalition,  an exhibition group of professional SAQA members, and the Northern Michigan Textile Artists.  I am also a member of the Crooked Tree Art Council, the Charlevoix Circle of Arts, and the Jordan River Arts Council.

    Your quilts are beautiful! I’m MaryW on the Trike/Crane cams, live in NM, and do a lot of hand quilting (mostly baby quilts now, since it takes so darn long.)

    Your work is beautiful, Kathie. I especially love the whimsical quality and the colors–both suble and bright ones.

    Although we grew up together, I had no idea you were intersted–and talented–in fabric art. I’m delighted to get to know this part of you.
