Ed Johnetta Miller will lead “Color in Quilting” at the Norwalk Historical Society, one of the stops along the Norwalk Quilt Trail
Miller, a fiber artist, quilter, teacher, curator and lecturer has this to say about her approach:
“Shapes, color, texture, movement, the natural world inspire me. My approach is one of improvisation, much like the idiosyncratic rifts played in the jazz music I constantly listen to. While working, I deftly move from one piece to another, placing a color here, and a color there. I arrange pieces of brightly colored fabrics with those that are textured and patterned. My designs are never predetermined; they develop as I go along. My quilt approach often begins with a theme or concept inspired by a cultural or spiritual experience. As an artist and a woman of color, I am always cognizant of what I believe to be my role and responsibility to my cultural inheritance and community. I try to successfully integrate a multitude of culturally-charged expressions and concerns into my work."
