About this Artist
''With my vivid imagination, and a little inspiration from the real world, I create colorful and energetic abstract images. My young children are also a constant reminder of the value of play and expressive energy, and I try to capture those feelings in my quilted art.''
After retiring from working many years as an oil exploration geophysicist, Michele Hardy devoted herself full-time to the art of quilt-making. Her technique is a combination of fiber collage, quilting and embroidery and utilizes a variety of dyed, painted and commercially printed fabrics. Spontaneity is central to her creative process, as she experiments with color and form and elaborate threadwork in each of her pieces.» View the full artist page of Michele Hardy
