Sonya Lee Barrington

"Over the years my immediate goals change but I continue to work with cloth, color, and line in the domain of quilts."

Creating quilt-like items that blur the line between function and display, Sonya Lee Barrington is not offended when a viewer calls her work "craft" or even "decorative" instead of "art." With a sensibility that designs patchwork for both the bed and the wall, she can spot the art within her craft as easily as she can identify the craft within her art.

Barrington works with dupioni silk. Even though the patterned cloth and graphic quality of her work is not entirely traditional, she considers herself a traditionalist given her use of thin layers and some quilting.
