Margaret Sheehan – “Heading Towards Abstraction”
I am an artist who transforms fabric into art quilts. The materials I choose speak to me through color, texture and design. In constant dialog with my work, a swirling energy of spirals, playful stitching and poetic shapes emerge. Having these ongoing conversations with my art brings each piece to a unique fruition that is both powerful and exciting.
Margaret M. Sheehan earned her BFA from The University of the Arts, Philadelphia and has been a fiber artist and teacher for 25+ years. She is a juried fiber artist at the League of NH Craftsmen and has exhibited her art quilts in the League Shops, Lucca, Italy and in various places around New England. She is a member of SAQA and was a regional rep for the ME/NH/VT region for three years.
Margaret likes to experiment. Using no patterns, her original work features spirals, geometric shapes, wavy lines, paint, stamping and an assortment of fiber. Her art emanates from a place deep within her. She uses a variety of machine and hand sewing embellishments to enhance her work. She is currently writing a book with Michele O’Neil Kincaid about transitioning from traditional patterns to art quilts. Margaret lives in Hanover, New Hampshire.
