Cindy Grisdela Studio


Fiber Art


From my studio looking out over a lake in Reston, VA, I draw inspiration for my contemporary wall quilts from the view of nature outside my window every day. I design abstract art quilts that are meant to hang on the wall, with a focus on color, line, and texture. The color is the first step. Putting colors together intuitively, I use fabric the way a painter might use paint to create graphic compositions that engage the viewer from a distance, yet invite a closer look. The texture is the second step. The stitching lines provide contrast and dimension to the piece. I will also have pillows, fabric necklaces, and scarves printed from high quality photos of my work, and signed copies of my book, Artful Improv.
