Sue Ellen Romanowski
As an artist, I encourage you to decorate your home and give gifts of unique
fabric works of art. I make wall hangings, table runners, and fabric vases to
add warmth and color accents to your home. I am happy to accept commissions for
your specific size and color desires.
At a young age, my Mother taught me to sew on a farm in Central
Illinois. Sewing clothing, stuffed animals, and home decorating
items provided satisfaction for many years. The flat plains of the Illinois
prairies keened my senses to pattern and texture. Later in life I became a
Master Gardener with Cornell and am a National Council of Federated Garden
Clubs Accredited Life Flower Show Judge and have designed many gardens and
flower arrangements that have won numerous awards. In 1996, I began my journey
with quilting and found a true passion. I have had the pleasure of studying
with many local, national, and international fiber artists.
Fabric art is an extension of my love of color and pattern developed through
years of gardening. In common with flower arranging, the wall hangings show my
pleasure in color interactions by piecing the many fabrics that I use. I find
color very exciting and with the fabric, use it to create motion and feeling.
The quilting that I do is produced on a domestic sewing machine by hand guided
'free motion.' Nature, especially flowers, trees, and leaves inspire many of my
creations. I love nature and celebrate it with my work.
