Lecture Description: Fun, entertaining, and amusing with Word Salad, Fashionistas and Girl-friends and a few Angry and Not So Angry Women, I chronicle how quilting frames and tells the story of my real and imagined life and my love of storytelling that took me from fashion design to traditional, hand-pieced miniatures to quilts to sleep under to cartoon quilts to fashionistas and angry and not so angry women.
About Kathryn: Kathryn is an artist, fashionista, quilter, cook, baker, gardener and storyteller. Her whimsical series of small, playful, single frame cartoons featuring long limbed and knobby kneed Fashionistas invoke fashion illustration. Fashionistas mixed with some Word Salad combine fashion and quilting along with her passions and are a celebration and exploration of women and femininity, their lives, friendships and romantic relationships, real and imagined. Commercial fabric is her paint; thread is her ink, and the sewing machine her pen. Her quilts have a strong connection to traditional quilting making.
Kathryn is a Juried Artist member of SAQA (Studio Art Quilters Association), has a Certificate in Fashion Design and has been sewing ever since she could thread a needle. She is the author of Word Salad, Fashionistas and Girlfriends and the coauthor of Backart -- On the Flip Side.
