Conversation with Ann Fahl…the beautiful new book…Lookfor it.


The cover of Ann’s new book

As many
of you may already know, Ann Fahl has a gorgeous new book
coming out this spring. And of course all of us ” Ann fans” are
curious and excited to get a peak at it. Well, Ann
contacted me today. I’m happy to say that she has agreed to
be featured again on an upcoming post and tell us all about it.
The title is “A Black and White Tail”. Here’s a
little from Ann about it, a teaser for us all to chew on. “Jacquie
Scuitto agreed to write some poetry to go along with all of my cat
quilts. Eventually, there were a total of 22 cat quilts and
Jacquie wrote additional verse for each new one that came along.
Now there are a total of 34 quilts included in the story line.
Quilt and cat lovers of all ages will enjoy it.”
I copied a few examples of her cat quilts , a peak
at the kind of beautiful quilts this book will contain. We’ll
all have to wait to see which quilts are in it. So look for that
upcoming conversation with Ann… coming soon and her new book this
spring. http://www.annfahl.com Ann’s

About Myself & My Approach
Art has always played a role in my life, in one form or another. My family is filled with many artist's, so my love of art came naturally.
By my teens, I had narrowed my focus to painting. I decided I was going to become a serious painter. I joined the Las Vegas Artist's Guild at 15, the youngest member at that time.
I've continued to paint throughout my life. On occasion I've sold my work, but I had more important priorities, I was raising my children, part of that time as a single parent.
My circumstances have changed, the kids are grown and I have more time for Art. Art is a form of therapy for me.
I was introduced to quilting & fell in love.
In time I missed the creative freedom painting made possible.

Then I discovered mixed media fiber art, I was home.
MY APPROACH TO ART
It's the creative process that holds the greatest attraction for me. Starting with a tiny seed of an idea; vague and blurred around the edges, I follow where that leads.
My approach is an instinctual one. Generally, I do little pre-planning. I make creative decisions, choices, directions to take as they present themselves.
This approach can lead to quite a few changes in the direction the quilt takes. The outcome can come as a surprise. I love that element of surprise!
Sometimes everything just comes together & I think to myself, "this is one of my better ones". when that happens, I can’t wait to show someone. I feel like a six year old, running home from school, a drawing in hand, excited to show Mom. At those times. I'm smiling like the Cheshire cat.

I’ve had work published in several magazines., which is gratifingvl. But the most gratifying thing is having clients be really happy with their purchased quilt.
