How Did I Get Here From There?
Lecture by Carol Ann Waugh
From a career in publishing to full time studio fiber artist, Carol will talk about her 9-year journey and share some lessons learned from moving from a left brain to right brain life. Besides showing the progression of her work from traditional to art quilts, Carol will also talk about being professional artist and gallery owner and will share some lessons learned that can help you achieve your own short and long term artistic goals.
Carol’s fiber art has been juried and invited into more than 50 national and international exhibitions during the past 5 years. She is the author of five books on quilt-making and fiber art. Her newest one, Stupendous Stitching, was published in the Spring of 2012 and is now in its third printing.
Her art has been featured in many books and magazines including 500 Art Quilts, 1,000 Artisan Textiles, American Quilter, Quilter’s Newsletter, SAQA Journal, Artscape Magazine, Quilting Arts, SAQA Journal, Machine Quilting Unlimited, Fiber Art Now, and Studios Magazine. She has appeared as the featured artist on The Quilt Show, PBS’s Quilting Arts, Quilter’s Newsletter TV and QNNtv.
Her work has been purchased by major hospitals, hotels, corporations and individual collectors. She recently completed a large public art commission the City of Denver.
In addition she teaches her Stupendous Stitching, Stitch & Slash, and Self Portraits classes online at Craftsy.com where more than 30,000 students from more than 150 countries worldwide are learning her techniques.
Carol has just moved her working studio and opened up a new Contemporary Art Gallery (aBuzz Gallery) in the RiNo Art district of Denver.
