I have sewn since childhood and have been a quilter for over 30 years, a dyer for 20. My wall hangings are inspired by the geometry of the world around me. They are abstract, but often suggest architecture, influenced by my having grown up in New York City and by my travels. Much of my work is small in scale, suitable for your apartment or office. I love color, visual texture, and spatial ambiguity. I work intuitively and interactively, generally starting from a palette of colors rather than from a sketch. I machine quilt my work to add texture, reinforce the composition, and provide a further layer of interest. I hope the viewer can enjoy the work as a whole from a distance and discover new delights when they come closer.

My design and technical skills have been enhanced through participation in workshops at the Quilt/Surface Design Symposium in Columbus, Ohio since 1991, where I studied design and technique with such teachers as Sue Benner, Caryl Bryer Fallert, Emily Richardson, and Cynthia Corbin. I studied surface design with Ann Johnston, Carol Soderlund, and others. My work is sold at the Potomac Fiber Arts Gallery in the Torpedo Factory, Alexandria, VA, and through my website and has been exhibited in shows throughout the United States. Many of my quilts are in private collections. A list of current and past exhibits is on my website at https://www.florisflam.com/exhibits
