About the Event
Please join us as Lucienne shares an in-depth look at how to create visual art by way of quilting. She will cover what fabrics work best, how to put them together, tactics for different textures, ideas for subject matter and as a bonus -- how to frame -- the easy way.
Originally from Cambridge, MA, Lucy was steeped in the arts through childhood. Initially focusing on music, she discovered fabrics and sewing 20 years ago and has never looked back. Lucy starts each morning in her studios at 5am. After her day job in the performing arts, she is often back in the studio. Whether experimenting with patchwork and color, creating fabric paintings or long-arm quilting, her work typically showcases bold colors with a broad bouquet of thread and texture. Inspiration comes from places, books and the fabric itself. Most fun for her, is to witness the surprise from folks realizing, only up-close, her paintings are in fact fabric.
Lucy is a member of Art to Change the World, Minneapolis Modern Quilt Guild, MN Quilters, Dakota Star Country Quilters, MN Contemporary Quilters, NEMAA, St. Paul Art Collective and the Textile Center in Minneapolis. She lives and studios in Saint Paul with her husband and mutt “Lulu.” Lucy also maintains a studio at the Solar Arts building in Minneapolis.
