Lucy Peterson Watkins  Fiber Expressions
I am a graphic artist. I find comfort in hard lines, bold colors and sharp angles.  I use my fiber (silks or cottons) as my canvas as it softens the hard edges if my artwork.  I use thread-play/inks/dyes/quilting to create texture to complete the pieces.  I complete my designs with free motion quilting & free motion embroidery.  Most all my silk and fiber pieces are hand dyed or inked for pure color. I love to do pieced fiber artworks.  Some of my fiber art quilts have more than 5000 pieces.  I have been the featured artist three times  for the University of Utah Red Butte Garden art show.  My shows sold out.  I designed the 60th anniversary mug for Utah Public Radio and have been featured in at other Utah galleries.    I also show my artwork on YouTube in a music video format, under Lucy Peterson Watkins.
" I enjoy creating art by doing something totally different.  many of my pieced depict the place I grew up in and love-- The Inter-mountain area.  It is important for me to depict the illustration of the familiar, beautiful and sometimes odd places of this area that individuals are reflective about."
