After taking classes with Alice Kettle, Jane Sassaman, Ruth McDowell, and Sian Martin, Kathy Suprenant decided to retire early so that she could become a full time textile artist. She is very happy with this new career path.
As a cell and molecular biologist, she brings a different perspective to her art quilting. In many cases, Kathy’s artwork appears magnified and somewhat distorted as if viewed through an imaginary lens. While she may see cells and mysterious microscopic organisms in her quilts, others look outward and observe asteroids, planets and stars.
Kathy’s work in two very different quilting styles: whole cloth quilts and hand-appliquéd tile quilts. She may create her own fabric for the whole cloth quilts either by traditional relief printing or by digitally manipulating her original sun paintings. The appliquéd quilts utilize both hand-dyed and commercially printed fabrics. All of the artwork is heavily hand stitched and machine quilted.
