Lauren Kingsland
Lauren is celebrated for her colorful quilts filled with richly varied fabrics, symmetrical motifs, and repurposed materials. Notes Lauren, "Quiltmaking is like a well-lived life. Its beauty comes from the creative use of the materials at hand, and embracing the unexpected result." She has created more than 100 commissions for clients from their collections of treasured garments. Her goal is to break the barriers of tradition so that quilts are recognized as an art medium and also as tools for personal creative expression, cooperation, understanding, self knowledge, and healing. She teaches quiltmaking for the Studio Arts Department of the Smithsonian Associates in Washington, D.C.
