"Wren Stories" Art Quilt by Bernie Rowell

I am a professional artist passionate about making painted quilts.  My painted quilts are a hybrid of the fine art techniques of painting and collage with the stitching techniques of quilting and embroidery.

My painted quilts have been commissioned for hospitals, universities, corporate spaces and private homes throughout the United States.

Artist's Statement:  As a child I learned one true thing: making art made me happy.  That is still true today.  The solitary aspect of studio work is my daily meditation, and the problem solving that art making requires has kept me interested over the years.

My aim is twofold; to create a beautiful work of art that will reconnect the viewer with the beauty of the natural world while referencing the tactile/textile memories to home, family, community and women's work; the very essence of ""quilt"".

“Drive a nail home and clinch it so faithfully that you can wake up in the night and think of your work with satisfaction,- a work at which you would not be ashamed to invoke the Muse”
-Henry David Thoreau

In our case, it would be the needle or other fiber tool. Drive it home! And, we all thank you for your words, left here to these good folks. Invoke your Muse!
