Bio & Statement

Cheryl Deene Hurd is a textile and fiber artist. Her career in the sewing arts has been a lifetime of passion for textiles and design. Cheryl is a garment designer, custom clothier and sewing teacher for over thirty years. Cheryl wanted to create more interest in her garments. This was accomplished by using techniques applied to quilt making. She has been making traditional, improvisational, abstract and art quilts for 30 years. Combining quilting and garment making began the development into Wearable Art and Fashion. Her attraction to quilts and the quilted surface is the texture created by piecing and layering fabrics together and the added dimension of the stitch. Cheryl's cloth creations have come full circle, to cover the body, the bed, and the wall. Her craft is fiber art. Her medium is fabric. Her tools are limitless.

In my world quilting and surface design are complementary elements for transforming cloth. It is the quilted surface that is my canvas. I like to use a variety of media and techniques creating visual and tactile textures in the cloth. These are the elements that alter the surface, add richness and depth, and will most effectively convey my ideas.
