Dominie Nash constructs collage-like art quilts using fabrics which she has patterned with a variety of surface design processes, including immersion dyeing, painting with dyes and pigments, screen-, mono- and Inko-printing, chemical resist, and discharge. The surfaces of her quilts are layered with dyed organza, which can enhance or change the color beneath it, and with machine stitching and embroidery.
Nash is a full-time studio art quilter, primarily self-taught. She developed her personal style by finding ways to create the designs she envisioned without using the techniques of traditional quilt making. Hence, she developed an overlapping appliqué, leaving the edges raw, to achieve the spontaneity she seeks in her work. She has spent the past 20 years learning and practicing her art.
