Artist Profile: Jeannie P. Moore

Jeannie P. Moore
Escondido, California

1. What kind of challenges did this theme present to you? This theme gave me a multitude of ideas and it was hard for me to focus and choose just one design. I started designing and working on one concept and put that aside. I then began another quilt which is this one but didn’t finish it before I almost went back with my first design!
2. Describe your studio space? I work in 2 rooms in my home in San Diego. My sewing room consists of my Bernina longarm and my Bernina Quilters Edition. My workroom has 2 large tables for cutting and ironing and a design wall. I have a small courtyard off my studio room for dyeing fabric. Hopefully the future will bring me a larger studio space!?
3. Where can people see your work in the next six months? I have a quilt in Textile Architecture at IQF Houston, 3 quilts are traveling with SAQA’s Concrete & Grasslands, Radical Elements and Food for Thought.
4. Do you ever work in a series?  If so, what benefits or challenges does this present to you as an artist? I have a Roundabout Series which I enjoyed and would like to do another similar one. Once your design/concept is established I think the series comes quickly. Thanks for the idea!

5. What other activities do you engage in that “feed” your creative energy? I love to cook and don’t necessarily like following recipes. I like creating a meal with what I have on hand and especially with seasonal vegetables and fruits. I’ve recently taken up knitting and love all of the dyed yarns!
