2013 Featured Quilter: Pamela Druhen
Pamela Druhen has been working in fabric and thread creating representational landscapes and florals since 1996. Normally considered fiber art, Pamela's "Threadscapes" are paintings in every sense of the word. She uses the fiber medium to explore the relationships between light, depth, color and texture in the natural world. Her work is defined by the four seasons as she experiences them in Vermont.
Pamela uses quilting and heavy threadwork as design elements that enhance the texture, movement and depth of each piece. Newer work incorporates silk or procion dyes that she applies with a brush on silk or cotton to create the image that she then embroiders with rayon or trilobal polyester threadwork and highly detailed quilting. Pamela has been competing on the national level since 2001 and internationally since 2002. As an emerging artist, she continues to spend most of her time in the studio creating new work. When not in the studio she can be found teaching, lecturing, exhibiting and promoting her work or traveling with her husband Claude, photographing new vistas to share with us.
