One of Harvest Gold's prized artists is Kathy Angel Lee, a passionate quilter who's beautiful pieces are perfect for autumn.
Kathy’s passion and avocation has been sewing since she was twelve years old. In the late 1980s, Kathy was introduced to quilting through an appliqué class. From that simple beginning, her work has evolved from a traditional form to a more artistic format. She is primarily self-taught, but has taken classes from many internationally known textile artists. In addition, she takes painting and drawing classes with local artists.
Since her redirection (or retirement) from education in 2002, Kathy enjoys experimenting with a wide range of fabrics and techniques in both traditional and non-traditional ways. Currently, her interests are landscapes, flowers, wearable art, fabric manipulation, creating her own painted and dyed fabric and working in mixed media with textiles, threads, paints and embellishments. She looks to nature for her inspiration, photographing the flowers in her garden or beautiful landscapes around her home or in her travels. Her work is more representational than abstract, although she is beginning to experiment with some abstract expression. Come see more of her work at Harvest Gold!
