Quilts as Art: The Color and Texture of Natural Landscapes
Fabric is tactile. I can’t touch it enough. I use it to capture the sensuousness of every curve, valley, ridge and crystallized angle I see in the natural world. Color and contrast draw me in, texture keeps me there. It leaves me breathless every day.
Anne’s inspiration comes from her surroundings: the landscapes she sees every day around her home in Cambridge, Vermont. Most of Anne’s latest work is inspired by her own or others’ photographs, and she carries her camera while out cross-country skiing, cycling, hiking or kayaking to capture the details. Anne is an award-winning artist who has achieved recognition at local, regional and national quilt shows.

Good Words About Anne's Quilts
Anne: I want to thank you for your wonderful Landscape Workshop that I took recently through our guild. I must admit I was a little intimidated by the process, but your assurance that I could do it, made me much more at ease. It was so much fun and I must admit a little addicting. I finished the top and then decided to put to use some of the techniques you had taught me in a Thread Painting workshop I took a few years ago. It was magic! I was so pleased with the end result. Your patience, expertise and step by step guidance was a tremendous help. You have definitely found your calling.
Anne created a beautiful 11" x 17" quilted and stitched photo on fabric for a wedding gift that far exceeded my expectations. I supplied her with the photo and her border design and stitching tremendously enhanced the scenic photo of the couple's outdoor wedding venue. Her eye for detail and sense of color are amazing! This was evident in her use of the slightest piece of red fabric to pick up on the red tractor in the distance. Adding that touch never would have occurred to me, but it added great depth and balance to the whole piece.
In August, 2017, I my attention was captured by a large quilt that was hanging in the window of Artists In Residence in St. Albans. It stopped me in my tracks as I was walking by. The piece is titled "Chin To Nose" and it depicts Mt. Mansfield from a perspective I am intimately familiar with. I have stood in the same spot, looking down the ridge on countless occasions. I went inside to inquire about the piece and, to my good fortune, Anne was working in the gallery that day. We had a very pleasant conversation about the piece and her other work and in the end, I made the decision to purchase the piece after it had been displayed in the gallery. When...Read More
Anne's choice of color for her fabric always gets to the heart of what she is depicting. Even more delightful and masterful are her choices of thread color and stitch pattern, which create depth and texture within each quilted piece. I find myself stepping back then getting very close to the pieces that hang on my walls: they always intrigue me.
