Laura Loewen is an artist and designer who has been quilting for 25 years. Her style has grown with her eagerness for experimentation with technique, color, texture, and shapes. Many of her quilts feature a mix of solid, print, and woven fabrics in a full color spectrum. She considers her work falling in a postmodern design space with maximalist qualities. Her quilts have been shown locally, nationally, and internationally in shows and exhibitions, winning awards from international shows, and have been featured in many publications.

View Laura’s trunk show. Come with questions for a Q&A session.
