“Mrs. Twedt” was my art teacher when I was in high school back in the 70’s! I met her… again, thirty+ years later, quite unexpectedly…’ in my next door neighbor’s back yard, at a Fourth of July barbeque several summers ago. She goes by “Katie” now… and it took me awhile to get comfortable calling her only by her first name! IT HAS BEEN such a blessing to know her as friend...a wonderful encourager, and talented artist that she is. She then invited me to be the featured artist at our LIBERTY VILLAGE ARTS CENTER in my hometown of Chester, MT. You can buy Katie’s art there… and oh, by the way, she has been featured in several national art magazines of the Somerset Studio variety with her wonderful, and full-of-color ART.
Her art play is fantabulous! The picture below shows a piece of her paper art. I’m so fascinated with her art, I just had to find a way to incorporate it into a quilt, and (with her permission) made it the theme of this mini art quilt.
