When award-winning artist Sheila Frampton Cooper creates, she revels in the spontaneous. Her free-form process with its surprising twists and turns inevitably delivers her to a place of unfiltered originality where her bold work unapologetically commands attention. Her greatest affinity lies with improvisational piecing, as well as painting with thickened dyes and various aspects of surface design. Her pieced quilts are bold and graphic, as she is inspired by color, line, and shape. Sheila finds inspiration in the natural world as well as the bustling metropolis. This duality manifests itself in her work through bold, graphic designs juxtaposed with quieter and flowing, amorphous creations.
