Available - Noriko Endo
Since 1985, Noriko Endo has followed her passion and devoted herself to creating artistic, nature inspired quilts. She chose quilting as the ideal medium to express her profound love of and feelings for nature, trees and blossoms. She uses colors in an exuberant way, similar to impressionist painters who often fill their canvases with light, shade and depth and her work has been recognized for its likeness to landscape oil paintings with their textured multi-dimensional surfaces.
Her technique, which she calls Confetti Naturescapes, allows her to capture the play of light and color she sees during walks in the woods. She uses tiny pieces of fabric arranged under a layer of transparent tulle (netting made from silk, nylon or rayon) to create an effect akin to pointillism.
