Artist Information for Shea Wilkinson
I create art quilts using free motion quilting, in a sense, drawing with needle and thread. Aside from loving the daily rhythm of the machine, I also enjoy the chance to immerse myself in topics that I find visually and intellectually exciting. My works are full of references to science, natural and extraterrestrial worlds, and mythology. Through my work, I’d like to elicit a sense of magic and wonderment in the viewer, preparing them to create a space where everything is permitted and new worlds spring up instantly. If reality and science fiction are two sides of the same coin, I will continually try to make art just on the edge between the two.
