About Louise Silk
Louise began her quest to acquire skills as a quilter after being inspired by an article in Ms. Magazine in 1971 about quilt making as a woman's art form. Over the past thirty years, her work has been included in Quilt National Biennial Exhibition of Contemporary Quilts as well as many private corporate collections such as Usairways, Paine Webber, and PNC Bank. In addition to commissions and exhibitions, she lectures and teaches. While working on a masters degree in Leadership and Liberal Arts, she discovered self-leadership, a form of leading where the leader encourages followers to become their own leaders and lead themselves. She is a certified Integrated Kabbalistic Healer. Louise is currently living and working from her loft in the South Side of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
