Vicki Conley is a Juried Artist Member of Studio Art Quilt Associates and serves on the Global Education Committee and the New Mexico regional exhibition committee.
“I am moved by the wonders of the natural world. I create both abstract and representational work. Having a background in the natural sciences has always caused me to look at things from that angle. Why do the birds act as a group? How is the mountain formed? What causes the orange crusty stuff? I am constantly imagining how I would reflect their beauty in my art.”
“I use machine piecing, both from designs drawn on stabilizer as well as improvisational piecing to capture the feeling of a place or event. The tactile nature of fabric and thread serves both spirit and concept.”
“I will share my inspiring journey through the national parks and how I combine photo inspiration and imagination to make graphic style art quilts. I will share funny stories and touch a little about the various techniques I use. Turned edge machine piecing, fussy piecing and silk screening.”
