About VictoriaMe? I had fine art training and am a painter at heart who has sculpted, still does photography and basically isn't happy unless I am making something. I've always known I'd become some kind of artist but to my surprise QUILTS became my greatest passion...
After I graduated, I focused all my efforts on my art and moved to New York City in 1994. Starting out in NYC was intimidating and expensive, so I always had my sewing machine handy to whip up a few skirts for work. I painted furiously, had a few shows, but in the end, I kept coming back to sewing.
In 2008 I saw a popular quilting blog online and I thought "Hey! I can do that" and here I am.
My approach to QUILTING is very much the way I draw. I use warm up excercises to get me started... 15 minutes at a time...
15 minutes of "play" and inevitably a QUILT idea emerges.
I love QUILTING for myself and I love QUILTING for other people. It makes me very happy to be commissioned to make a QUILT for someone who I know will cherish it. A QUILT I have made keeps me attached to the people who live with it and that, besides my loving family, brings me the greatest joy.
