Artist Information for Peggy Brown
Even though I paint and quilt for myself (for the challenge and joy of it), knowing visual art must be seen to be heard, true fulfillment comes when the viewer unites with my vision and becomes a part of my marks on paper or fabric. I approach my art quilting from the viewpoint of a watercolor artist using the same methods and media I have used for years when painting works on paper. My goal is to take a free-flowing start, and by using collage, overlays of more pigment, and drawing, compose a well-designed finish.
