Lynda Sondles Mixed Media Art

My work celebrates God and His created world in both abstract and representational form, specifically inspired by the Blue Ridge Mountains of Western North Carolina. My medium is the art quilt.

I came to quilting in my late 40s after exploring the use of color in other mediums – sumi-e, stained glass, soft pastels and basketry. The added dimension of pattern and texture in fabric piqued my interest and challenged me to push the color envelope with this medium.

I am inspired by the sunrise and sunset over the mountains, the shadows cast on the landscape by clouds, and the color of the trees in the changing seasons.
