Stephanie Ford Forrester textile artist and painter

Textile Artist & Painter 

What motivates the singular expressive mode of the individual artist? Why does one create dark disturbing images and another make art of transcendent light and beauty?  Life experience, magical moments, the natural world, personal, historical and cultural references, the minutiae of life and the very materials I choose to work with all serve to inspire me.  Hand worked in luminous silks and batiks, my unique art quilts explore symbols of the ancient past and reflect the shimmering mysteries of our lands and waters.
