2015 Cover Artist
We are pleased to announce our 2015 Cover Artists for the LeMoyne Chain of Parks Art Festival, Deon Lewis! Ms. Lewis was born and raised in Tallahassee, Florida, where she learned to quilt at the young age of 12 and has been honing her talents as a fiber artist for the past 10 years. She has received top awards in several Art Quilt Shows and has recently received an Award for Distinction in Fiber Arts. She has displayed work at Grassroots Coffee in Thomasville in connection with The Thomasville Collective and has an upcoming Exhibition in Biscayne National Park in Homestead, Florida. The exhibition is in connection Studio Art Quilt Association (SAQA) and will travel for three years to various National Parks around the United States.
She has always been drawn to the complexities of nature especially flowers and animals. Her typical medium of choice includes fabric, fibers, thread and acrylic paint or ink. Her use of dynamic colors and unique compositions in her artwork help to focus the observer toward a desired idea or emotion.
Her hope is to create through fabric, thread and paint, an idea or vision that evokes a personal response from the viewer.
