Lecture and Trunk Show
|Lecture and Trunk Show – “What happened to the ruler? The Journey of an Art Quilter”
– 45-minutes presentation and 15 minutes Q&A
– I moved to the US in pursuit of my career as a scientist in HIV research. Until then, I had not been exposed to quilting. Here in the States, I saw quilts, lots of them, and I was fascinated. Of course, it didn’t take long until I was making my first quilt. I was in for a surprise…
In my presentation I tell my journey of becoming a full-time art quilter (yes, I did quit my job as scientist), from my first attempts to having my work in international art collections and commissions in large US hospitals. I share the lessons I have learned while following my passion and starting a small business, and I show original art quilts as well as digital images of my work.
“Christine visited the Southern Wake Quilters Guild to share her knowledge on Art Quilts. Her information was clearly presented and the information flowed smoothly from topic to topic. She supported her talk with marvelous slides and had many quilts on hand for us to examine closely. Of major interest were the dimensional pieces, and her use of color to create an emotion or sense of presence. Several members of our guild were inspired to branch out from traditional patchwork into more expressive quilting, thanks to Christine’s sharing.”
