Alaska SAQA member Carrie Payne currently has a show at the Girdwood Center for Visual Arts in Girdwood, Alaska.
Carrie made 15 new pieces for the show which is called Once Upon…Happily Ever After.
These new pieces explore fairy tales through the media of beautiful textiles, many of which Carrie has created herself.
Carrie Payne is a self-taught mixed media fiber artist and quilter.
She combines fabric, thread, paper and found objects to create art quilts, fabric books, journals and other stitched creations.
Her artwork has been featured in publications such as Sew Somerset, Art Quilting Studio, American Quilter Magazine, and Somerset Holidays & Celebrations.
In addition to making art, Carrie designs art quilt patterns and text print fabrics and teaches classes on showing the world your creativity with fabric and thread. See more of Carrie’s work at on her website Believe Magic. <www.believemagic.com>.
Each of Carrie’s art quilts is an adventure in happiness.
