Event Details

In this lecture, David will talk about his work as a visual artist, and the similarities between his gallery art and how he now works as a quilter.

This talk starts with a review of David’s stitched paper artwork, which he has been creating and showing in galleries for over 20 years. He will give examples of where his inspiration comes from, and what his creative process is like. His artwork appeals to those who love organic processes and the beauty of nature, color and texture. David combines his monotype-printed paper with stitching on a vintage sewing machine. He will show examples and include details for those interested in creating their own stitched paper artwork.

In recent years, David has become enchanted with the world of modern quilting and is the current President of the Seattle Modern Quilt Guild. He will talk about how quilters can find inspiration in the world around us, and how his journey as a maker has taken him from gallery artist into the world of modern quilting. Participants will be able to talk with David during the Q & A session immediately after his presentation.
