I was excited to see some of my class work online at Lisa Call’s blog! Lisa is an internationally known textile artist and instructor. I recently completed an online class with her, called “Working in a Series” and am continuing to study with her for the rest of the year as part of a community of artists. During monthly online critiques, Lisa guides us as we move toward our artistic and professional goals.
Below are the pieces I made over the 8-week course, clockwise from top left: Pain, Happy, Zen 1, Curious, Serenity, Energy, Zen 2, and Tired and Hungry.
Before she was a teacher, Lisa already had a successful art career. To quote just a few lines of her bio:
Call’s award winning work has been shown in solo and group exhibits throughout the United States and Europe including Craft Forms at the Wayne Art Center, National Crafts, Fiber Art International, and Layers of Meaning at the Contemporary Crafts Museum in Portland, Oregon. Her piece, Structures #11, was selected for the cover of the Quilt National 2003 catalog.
