About Cindy

Gary and Cindy Anderson (June 18, 2011)

The world of art has always brought me joy. From my childhood explorations with chalk and paint to my creations using fabric and thread, I have utilized art as my vehicle to stretch my wings and explore the world around me.

My favorite art form has been given many names; I know it as improv quilting. This direction has taken me on a journey resulting in the formation of more than 200 art pieces; most of them focus around the manipulation of fabric. Some of the later pieces have added elements of hand stitchery, buttons, beads, vintage lace and portions of old quilts, etc.

I use this blog to share glimpses of my art and the environment in which it is created. Most of my art pieces are available for purchase on this site. If you would like to view a sampling of them in person you may do so at Raven’s Wish Gallery in Janesville, Wisconsin.

I take special pride in each and every item I create. I welcome the opportunity to share them with you through an in-person visit, an exhibit, or best of all your acquisition of one of my items. Now go and create your own masterpiece. With warm hugs…

  2. Thanks for sharing your story. I am a newbie quilter, and aspire to make free-form and hand painted quilts. I will check out Rayna Gillman’s book.
