So this blog has kind of morphed from street fashion to documenting my work to snippets of inspiration. I started a new blog that is all about what is inspiring me at the moment (http://annahartturner.tumblr.com/), and I hope to launch my own website or portfolio soon that solely focuses on my work. I’ll keep you posted, and in the meantime, enjoy my past works on the blog and you’ll see more from me soon! 😉
“Dans un atelier, c’est le moment qui parle, & non l’Artiste.”
(In a studio, it’s the moment that speaks, and not the artist)
Found: Prospectus: Encylopédie, from my French class.
“By making quilts and giving them away- it’s like almost giving away part of yourself, because you’re putting a lot of your energy and creative thoughts into it. I think it really fits into our whole culture…You can’t compare it to going to the store and buying a gift and giving it to somebody else. The quilts sometimes might take you two or three years of your time, time that you really don’t have, but you make that time, because you love that person and you want to make something special for him.” –Lydia Whirlwind Soldier (Sioux), 1993.
Found: To Honor and Comfort: Native Quilting Traditions through my Textiles of the Americas class. These are just the words to describe how I feel when I make something for someone as a gift.
“Attack life, it’s going to kill you anyways”
Found: Women’s bathroom stall on the first floor of College Library.
