 PROGRAM

Trunk Show – Fiber Arts

Andrea Brokenshire

Andrea Brokenshire (AMB Fiber Art and Design) is a national and international award winning quilt artist and instructor from Round Rock, Texas. In 1998 she was talked into making a quilt and found this form of art a perfect outlet of creative expression. Andrea quickly realized that her passion was appliqué. She specializes in appliquéd botanical quilts. As a former biologist, Andrea draws her inspiration from the natural world.

Tuesday, June 19

coneflower

The project size is 11” x 17” inches.  Andrea will go over how to prime the silk for paint (she has done this ahead of time because of time constraints), and how to create a pattern from photographs.  Then Andrea will go over her painting techniques on how to apply the color in layers to create luminosity and depth.  The rest of the time will be  spent painting.
