Colleen Wise

My quilts are distinctive for their illusion of depth. I love to play with three dimensions! Objects such as leaves or planets appear to float above a two-dimensional surface. I have a virtual toolbox full of tools I use to create that depth, and I will bring a big trunk full of quilts or slides to illustrate the results.

More about Colleen

Colleen’s education is in engineering, and her quilts reflect that in their strong graphic quality.  Creating designs and solving problems are her favorite parts of the process; cutting, sewing, and pressing are just the means to the end.  She loves to incorporate a sense of depth in her work; leaves float, balls protrude, hands seem to reach out. She has developed a strong style through her experiments in surface design.

Her quilts have won prizes in national and international shows.  She is the author of Casting Shadows: Creating Visual Dimension in Your Quilts (C&T Publishing), and she has appeared on several episodes of Alex Anderson’s Simply Quilts.  Colleen teaches, lectures and exhibits her work throughout the US.
