From the Artist
My name is Louise Silk and I am an artist, writer, and quilter living and working from my loft in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. For over forty years, I have been creating art that combines aesthetics and functionality with meaning and memory for family, friends, individuals and organizations. My primary work is quilt-centered utilizing spiritual themes, photo transfers, recycled fabrics from old clothing, and embroidery. I share life lessons coupled with my quilting expertise through my writing and teaching, most currently with my fictional story, Tent of Protection, and my spiritual how-to book, The Quilting Path. Please let me know how my work impacts your life.
