Susan Damone Balch
Quilt Artist and Fly Fishing Instructor
Images and colors from nature and fly fishing provide much of the inspiration for my original art quilts.
I love the meticulous process of creating stylized pieced pictorials with smooth curved lines. Alternatively, intuitively designed abstract work provides a balance to my creative endeavors.
An extensive collection of commercially available cotton batiks, hand dyes, hand painted, and other specialty fabrics serves as my palette.
Quilting adds movement and texture to the final product.
