DEBRA KIRK: WINNER OF THE "TOP 40 OPEN" CRAFT CONTEST
ARTISAN: DEBRA KIRK
Title: Mardi Gras Kaleidoscope (Quilt) Medium: Textile
"As a child, a kaleidoscope held my attention for hours gazing at the patterns. I often tried to save a design to show my mom without great results.
I use fabrics, instead of pieces of glass and mirrors, to create a static versus an ever-changing symmetric design. My art is influenced by the art quilts of Paula Nadelstern, as well as her fabric designs. I want to take my sewing and quilt making skills to another level by capturing a moment in time reflected in my textile kaleidoscope patterns." Contact Debra Kirk: firstname.lastname@example.org
