January, 2018 Guild Meeting- Art Quilter, Sidnee Snell

January guild meeting - speaker Sidnee Snell.

Sidnee's presentation was entertaining, inspiring, educational, and thought-provoking. Guild members enjoyed Sidnee and her quilts, and we were blushing when she praised our work as she enjoyed watching our "show and tell".  Our thanks to Sidnee for spending the evening with us! 

In 1994, after a dozen or so years working as an electrical engineer and programmer, Sidnee Snell left the high-tech industry and began her professional artistic journey.
Sidnee has been working with fiber and fabric since her girlhood, including a stint as a custom dressmaker in high school. Her early art-quilts were geometrical and abstract in design. They were heavily influenced by traditional quilts and her studies with Nancy Crow and other prominent art quilters. In 2007, she began developing a foundation appliqué technique and producing quilts based on photographic imagery.
Sidnee's work has been collected by individuals and exhibited in galleries, museums, and art shows locally, nationally, and internationally, including Quilt National 2013. Her work was featured on the television program Oregon Art Beat and has been published in exhibition catalogs as well as national and international magazines. She belongs to Studio Art Quilt Associates and Art Quilt Network.
