Shawn Marie Delker
I began sewing on my mom’s knee when I was five years old. Mom pushed the foot pedal and guided my hands as I made a bib for my doll, and I still have that bib! Clothing was my main sewing interest for most of my life until I discovered quilting ten years ago. After spending many years learning and improving my quilting skills, I began to explore the art quilt world. The moment I discovered free-form quilting, I fell in love with that creative and intuitive style.
My inspiration and color pallet come from the Kansas landscapes in which I live and from my travels across the Southwest. As I travel I collect color and texture ideas for my next quilt, and I always return ready and anxious to transform my inspiration into a work of art! I'm pleased to share this glimpse of my journey!
Courtyard Gallery Demonstration
I look forward to being the demonstration artist at the Courtyard Gallery in Lindsborg, KS on May 8, 2020! I will be showing how I thread paint and embellish my artwork with Inktense pencils.
Art Quilt Presentations
I am available to give programs at your guild meetings! The titles of my presentations are "Journey on the Silk Road" and "Art Quilt Journey." I also present workshops on various art quilt techniques for all skill levels.
