Katie Masopust

For nearly thirty years Katie Pasquini Masopust has produced high quality art quilts that are widely collected. From her early beginnings as a painter, dabbling in traditional quiltmaking, she has created work that evolved from structured mandalas and mind-blowing dimensional pieces to painterly landscapes and abstracts executed with the finest fabrics and creative stitching techniques.

A prolific author, and popular teacher and lecturer, Masopust works not only out of her studio in Santa Fe, New Mexico, but has also taught and lectured across North America, and in Europe, the Far East, Australia, and New Zealand. She has been the recipient of numerous awards, including the 2005 Silver Star Award from the Houston, Texas, Quilt Festival. She is currently serving on the Experius Academy Advisory Committee, as they develop the art mission for Gateway Canyons, Colorado, a destination resort for fiber artists and quilting enthusiasts.
