Quilting in a non-traditional style is Janet Swigler’s medium. Her process of cutting free-hand and working intuitively without the use of templates, honors the tradition of quilting and shows the versatility of the medium. The artist has worked in this style for five years while studying with Nancy Crow. Observations of daily life, attentiveness to nature, and reflections on personal insights provide the inspiration for her abstract creations. The use of color, improvisation, and imaginative re-structuring of a simple shape are important components.
