More About the Artist:

Kate Themel’s formal education in Fine Arts can be seen in her approach to fiber.

Over the past 15 years, Kate has developed a distinct pictorial style using mostly cotton fabrics and rayon thread.  Her compositions contain multiple layers of color and dense stitching, pushing the definition of a quilt into the realm of painting.

Her fiber artwork has been juried into Quilt National and has been exhibited in art galleries and museums from Boston to Botswana.  Themel has created custom wall hangings for private collectors and corporate clients, including a series of art quilts commissioned by Yale University's Afro American Cultural Center in New Haven, CT.
