Kathy Angel Lee is the only textile artist creating fabric collages here at Harvest Gold Gallery! While taking an applique class in the 1980's she was introduced to quilting and completely fell in love with the art. What's even more incredible is that she mainly taught herself what she knows about textile art and quilting. Kathy sees her work as ever evolving- her current work that we show in the gallery in much more artistically creative than where she began as a quilter. Today she mainly creates fabric collages using Persian Embroidery. This technique
"is a form of applique using 'fussy cut' printed elements to create a scene on a background fabric. Fabric collages is a style of art where a variety of materials are stitched to form a scene."
Kathy often starts with a photo that has been printed onto fabric, then adds stitching and other fabric pieces to create her finished piece. The result are these beautiful fabric collages- often nature scenes or animals. If you would like to see Kathy's work for yourself, stop by Harvest Gold Gallery!
