Buffie is our fabulous textile artist. She creates colorful art quilts that are full of light, and capture the depth of her subject. Her art quilts range from landscapes, to people, to poetry. In each quilt, Buffie finds a way to express the quality of light using a non-translucent material. Her technique of collaging layers of fabrics give a unique style to her quilts.
Buffie’s current favorite work, Moroccan Rugs, gives the viewer the illusion of walking up a flight of blue stairs through brilliantly colorful orange and red detailed hanging rugs:
Buffie spent most of her early life painting. She took art classes in college, then one day, she happened to watch Sewing with Nancy on PBS, featuring landscape quilting. “I thought 'I can do that,' and I have never looked back. My Mom sewed a lot. Being raised around a sewing machine gave me the confidence to explore
my exciting new passion.”
