Artist Profile: Jeannie Palmer Moore

Jeannie Palmer Moore
Escondido, California

1,  What year did you make your first quilt?    Traditional or art?  I made an airplane motif traditional quilt for my first quilt in the 1990's. My first art quilt was in 2005 when I started dyeing my own fabrics.

2.  What is the first show, and year, that you ever entered your art quilts?  Venue?  I entered my shibori dyed "Sunset" quilt in 2006 at the Escondido Arts Partnership "Tall & Thin" show and received a 2nd place ribbon.

3.  What is your artistic style?  I'd say my style is more graphic with surface design Because of my graphic design background.

4.  Have you ever changed your style from when you started making quilts?  Oh, Yes! I am constantly evolving- right now I'm enjoying combining my painterly style with surface design.

5.  What other style in quilt making piques your interest?  I've always enjoyed life drawing and I want to start putting more people in my designs.

6.  What other medium in art influences your work as a fiber artist?  At the moment watercolors are influencing my quilts. I'm able to produce depth in my designs with painted dyes and inks.

7.  What do you have coming up?  Shows, Articles in magazines, Books, etc.  I was accepted into SAQA "Radical Elements" which debuts in Houston. My "Tasty Tomatoes" in SAQA "Seasonal Palette" will be at Long Beach. The April/May issue of Quilting Arts Magazine includes my article on Tsukineko inks and Newspaper Transfer techniques. I have donated 2 fundraiser items for SAQA's 12x12 and "Kick off Your Heels". I hope to have 2 other quilts accepted into IQF Houston.

8.  Where will your art take you from here?  Where ever it wants! I've been an artist my entire life and creating is my way of life.

9.  Describe your studio space:  Since my kids have moved out I have taken over their 2 rooms. One is my sewing room with my Handiquilter Sweet 16 and my Bernina. The other is my wet room with large tables and supplies for creating along with my cat; Rocky.

10. What was the biggest challenge you have encountered in the making of your art quilt for "An Exquisite Moment?"  My idea came instantly and once I silkscreened my background it went together quite quickly. It was a great theme!
