Art Quilt Gallery by Susan Stein

Artist Statement

by Susan Stein

My work utilizes saturated color, texture, and designs that transition from the traditional into the contemporary.  Hand-dyed fabrics from many artists inspire my work and provide a surface for further embellishment.  Recently, surface design implemented with paint, discharge agents, photo transfer, layering, and manipulation have been the main focus of my pieces.  Recurring themes are trees and leaves, which appeal to viewers of all ages and experience, and emphasis on beauty expressed with rich materials and simple motifs.

The quilts featured in this gallery are available for purchase. If you would like more information about my quilts, please use the contact information below. Thank you!
