Do you ever wonder where artists find inspiration?

With fiber art quilts, as with any other art form, many wonder “Where does the artist get his inspiration?” What I find photographs can serve as a helpful tool in that regard. When I take one that I think would make a good fiber art wall hanging, I store it away in my inspiration box so to speak. I like to savor it, imaging what kind of an art quilt could be created from it.

So I’ll be careful not to use it rashly or too hastily. Dreaming of what could be if I make  the best use of it. In my opinion photography is a valuable tool in creating art.

Here a few of my quilts and the photos that inspired them.
