About the Artist
Linda McCurry’s earliest memories involve family members gathered around a quilting frame in her grandmother's farm house. She has been sewing since she was old enough to reach the foot pedal of her mother's Featherweight sewing machine.
Although Linda has been making art quilts since the late ‘90s; her love affair with fiber started with surface treatment when she began hand-painting fabric for clothing.
She holds an Associates degree in fashion design (University of Arizona and Pima College, Tucson) and a BS in Technical Writing and Multi-media Communications from U of A. She studied tailoring, pattern-making and design; mentored by master designers. This became the technical foundation for her spontaneous piecing. She studied art and art history to augment her adventurous color sense and eye for composition and design; but mostly her inspiration comes from nature.
Linda is associated with The Mavericks, an art quilt group in Phoenix and Arizona Quilters Guild. She served as the regional representative of Studio Art Quilters Association for Arizona from 2004-2007.
