Art Quilts by Tina Curran
My interest in making art quilts was jump-started by seeing my dear friend Sara take a variety of patterned fabrics, cut them into pieces and combine them in such an artistic way. As a life-long sewer (having experienced my first sewing triumph with a skating skirt I made in Girl Scouts), I took to quilting quickly. One of the great thrills with this art form is that my options are as infinite as those of a painter working on canvas – landscapes, portraits, geometric patterns, abstract impressions, etc. I enjoy both the deep American roots of traditional quilting and the unlimited possibilities today's art quilts present. Combining elements of both extremes is great fun, as I often use contemporary fabrics in century-old traditional quilt patterns. My art quilts have been on display in multiple art shows and quilt shows as well as more than a dozen times in national quilt magazines ("Quilters Newsletter" magazine and "Quiltmaker") and in one book (Ricky Tims' "Kool Kaleidoscopes"). While I have no formal art training, I have taken some wonderful classes over the years. However I know my greatest learning has come in the estimated 10,000+ hours I’ve spent making more than 100 art quilts to date. And it’s exciting to realize that there seems to be no end to this learning curve. To see more of my work, please visit www.tinacurran.com and/or tinacurran.etsy.com.
