About the Event
Kevin will give us a tour of his quilting journey as he shares over 75 examples spanning 30 plus years. Just how did he get where he's at now? From the start in 1986, we will follow his path through traditional quilting to art quilting, and his love of hand dyeing and surface design techniques that leads to where he is today.
Kevin is a textile artist living in Lynchburg, Virginia. In 1986, he was introduced to quilting by his maternal grandmother. Having always loved the legacy of family quilts, he decided to have her teach him the tradition. He was hooked from the first stitch and continues producing quilts and quilt art today.
Kevin is passionate about hand dyeing and patterning fabrics with surface design techniques. His experiments produce a line of unique fabrics and clothing that he exhibits and sells. He was recently awarded Best in Show for his diptych, Equilibrium, in Quilts=Art=Quilts 2021 at the Schweinfurth Art Center in Auburn, NY. Kevin teaches and lectures nationally.
