We Are All Connected

Several Layers of soy wax and dye. I was inspired by a rock formation that looked as if faces were in the rocks. Impressed by the Native American belief that “We are all connected” in someway.

About cherylolsonartquilts

I graduated with a major in Fine Arts degree from NSU in Aberdeen, but my passion for learning has been a continual process as I have taken classes in design, dye, fabric surface design and many ongoing classes over the past 10 years. I have been eclectic in my approach to my Fiber Art with the love of learning and trying out many variable techniques as you will see with my older pieces. This year you will see a shift, as I am finally beginning to have a vision of where my art will take me. I am very excited, for this new concept has not been used in the Fiber Art or Art Quilt world thus far. This new approach begins with my love of thickened dyes and batik layered dyes as the background piece and then adding the variances of scraps of color fused on top to create colorful and textural pieces of art.

    Cheryl, is the state quilt still interested in a fabric dying class in April? I am interested in teaching if they are.
