Quilt Life - August 2013, When Your Art Is In the Right Place, by Martha Sielman |
When 19 artists all claim that where they live is absolutely the best place for making their art, one must sit up and take notice.
The artists interviewed for Martha's book, Art Quilt Portfolio: The Natural World felt their surroundings were just right for them.
However, the artists live all over the United States (plus Australia), so each best place is very different.
Four artists from the book (including Ginny Eckley) were asked to take photos of where they live and talk in greater depth about the
influence of place on their art.
These artists are deeply inspired by their love for the beauty of the world that surrounds them. Each artistís work
reflects the colors, plants, birds, and animals present where they live.
