Artist Statement
Sara Sharp draws on her love of nature and painting to make collaged art quilts. She uses commercial and hand-colored fabrics to make images of abstracts, social concepts, and nature. A love of birdwatching shows in her many quilts about birds. Free motion machine thread painting and quilting enhance forms and shading in her works. She is a juried member of the Studio Art Quilt Associates and the American Pastel Society.

Her quilts have sold through art galleries and been exhibited in juried shows throughout North America and Europe. These shows were sponsored by I.Q.A., American Quilter’s Society, Studio Art Quilt Associates, Texas Quilt Museum, and local groups. They have appeared in the magazines Fiber Art Now, Quilting Arts Magazine, Studio Art Quilt Associates Journals, Art Quilt Portfolio, and Machine Quilting Unlimited. Her quilts are in the National Quilt Museum permanent collection and in the books, SAQA Exploring Art Quilts and the upcoming Stitched Journeys With Birds.
