Profile of Fulvia Luciano

me22aFulvia Luciano is a well-known Italo-Venezuelan artist who makes her beautiful art quilts in South Carolina.  She was recently interviewed by Clairan Ferrono.

“After a 20-year career as a paralegal, I decided to look elsewhere for sanity and satisfaction.  I gave myself one year to find something that would fit me; something that I could do with my hands and that would feed my soul. I knew I liked sketching and doodling but I had no interest in paper as a backdrop; I did not know whether this could be done in fabric but the idea appealed to me so I started to experiment.

I taught myself every single aspect of how to draw on fabric, how to paint it, rust it, dye it,sew it.  The first years were spent doing, learning tirelessly; now, fifteen years later, I know exactly what I love to do, how I like to work, and how to do it.  My work revolves around painting, printing, sketching, dyeing and stitching.

I have focused exclusively on private commissions for the past 3 years, and for 2015-16 I plan to return to my own personal work and to teaching.”
