Ann Loveless

Textile artist Ann Loveless’s inspiration comes from the lakes and forests of Northwest Michigan and the state’s Upper Peninsula. She works from photographs and uses three distinctive techniques: “The first are impressionistic art quilts — a borrowed technique from Japanese [quilt artistry], where I chop up fabrics and layer them under a tulle-like netting. The second are fabric mosaics. For those, the fabric is cut then fused onto the background, which is made up of little squares. The third is collage landscape art, which involves cutting, fusing, and stitching the fabrics, then adding linen and silk yarns and other nontraditional fibers, and the pieces forming the background are much larger.”
