The Evolution of an Artist | Quilting Arts Podcast Episode 16

Quilting Arts Podcast Episode 16 Cover - An Artist Evolves

Artists and their work evolve over time – and art quilters are no exception to that rule. This episode of The Quilting Arts Podcast focuses on the quality of artistic flexibility, something we all have had to nurture over the past year.

Hosts Susan Brubaker Knapp and Vivika Hansen DeNegre invited Judy Coates Perez to be their guest Artist in Residence and discuss how her work and business model have changed over time and yet maintained their sense of vibrancy.

    Might be too late, Susan. However, I have a huge pavillion you could use. It’s approximately 10×20. I enjoyed the podcast. I love the idea you and your realtor came up with that provides an opportunity to show your quilts! If it’s not too late, reply to this comment
