The Artist

Hello!

My name is Margaret Abramshe.


 

I am a fulltime studio art quilter, teacher and lecturer. My creative process begins by excavating  a hidden story behind the subject.  I use vintage family photographs, contemporary portraits and create digital collages printed on fabric.

My process starts with a digital image. I use photo manipulation software to enhance or create a new composition. The digital file is sent to a commercial fabric printer. When the fabric arrives in my studio, I use a variety of  materials including dyes, pigment sticks and paints directly on the cloth.  As I quilt through the cloth, batting and backing; I am  drawing with thread to create a rich and visually exciting  work of art.
