2018 Featured Gallery Artists Marion Shimoda

Featured Gallery Artist Marion Shimoda – CLEARWATER GALLERY, Sisters

Marion’s exploration into improvisational quiltmaking began ten years ago.  She uses traditional and innovative designs and techniques to construct original work.      Hand-stitching, improvisational piecework, hand-dyed fabrics, and skinny lines are common elements in her work, making each piece unique.  Patterns, colors and lines of everyday life intrigue her and are reflected in her work.

Marion also uses textiles and found objects to create other one of a kind items such as sculptures and ornaments.

She is a member of the Journeys art quilt group in Sisters, Columbia FiberArts Guild in Portland, the Modern Quilt Guild, and Studio Art Quilt Associates.  Her work has been shown in local, regional, and national shows.
