Creativity involves breaking out of established patterns in order to look at things in a different way. ~ Edward De Bono
If you looked inside the studio doors of David Taylor, “Sally at the Window” is just one of many quilts the fiber artist has created. Nationally and internationally known for his art quilts, his obsession with color, texture and pattern in fiberworks began when he was very young. In my opinion, he seems to be innately gifted with his talents.
He says “he’s traveled 300,000 miles around the world (twelve times the circumference of Planet Earth)” giving workshops on quilting and applique techniques to other fiber artists.
Taylor’s creations have been exhibited in fine art museums, such as Steamboat Art Museum because what he creates so exquisitely with fabric could be mistaken for fine art paintings. His work is revered by collectors. If you visit the Steamboat Art Museum website, you can watch videos where David talks about his craft.
Here are a few other examples of his art quilts.
