Artist Information for Sandra Branjord
I am a self taught artist. I come from a background in paper collage and assemblage. in 2008 I began a love affair with art quilts. I began telling my stories with fabric and thread. Most of my quilts are about the empowerment of women in general and myself in particular. Through my quilts I tell the story of my authentic self. Quilts are my way of dealing with my feelings and I try to cast those feelings in a universal way. My wish is that the viewer is either deeeply moved, or moved to smile. I quilt for myself, but if the viewer likes it that's good. If the viewer understands it...that's great!Images scroll down to view all
