"Hollyhocks on my Fence", Small Hanging Art Quilt by Lea Ann Ferring

Lea Ann Ferring is a dear friend and talented fabric artist. She was very kind to donate three of her art pieces to benefit 1CaT, and we are most grateful. She also was a huge help in 1CaT becoming a nonprofit. Her art quilts are unique and beautiful, and "Hollyhocks" is no exception. On this particular quilt, Lea Ann used needle felting to create the depth and texture of the hollyhock flowers, leaves and stems. The fabric Lea Ann chose for the background resembles a fence against which a lovely hollyhock might grow. The background is quilted for even more texture and depth. Check out the closeup photo to see details of Lea Ann's art. The price of this striking quilt would be $155 at our Cloudcroft, NM gift shop/gallery Off the Beaten Path.

About the Artist:

Lea Ann Ferring, Mayhill, NM

Lea Ann Ferring grew up visiting Cloudcroft and the Sacramento Mountains, and was blessed to move to the Mayhill area full time several years ago. "Nature excites me and I love to capture it using fiber art,” Lea Ann states. "I create realistic or whimsical scenes using a variety of materials and techniques.” Through her fiber art, Lea Ann explores texture using felting, quilting, hand stitching and painting with cottons, hand-dyed wools, recycled silks, beads, and various weight embroidery threads. "My favorite pieces come about by asking 'what if' as I apply different techniques.” Nature is her inspiration for color and texture. She works with commercial fabric, hand-dyed fabric, silks, wool roving, lace, ribbons and images on paper and fabric. She likes to include found objects in her work where it is appropriate. 

Excellent - no condition issues of any kind.
