Stylized women with a cheeky look, inspired by comic books, anime and political cartoons, reflect a wicked sense of humor in Kim Ritter’s art quilts. Using innuendo to explore human emotions and social issues, her allegorical imagery is both narrative and conceptual, inviting multiple levels of interpretation. Kim holds City and Guild Certificates in Patchwork, Quilting, and Design from the London Institute of the Arts. She has art quilts in collections worldwide and her work has appeared in FiberArts Magazine, American Craft Magazine, Quilting Arts Magazine and FiberArts Design Book Six. Kim was also recently chosen one of 40 craft artists given the designation of “A Texas Original Artist” by the Texas Commission on the Arts. Kim lost her studio in Hurricane Ike in September, and HCCC was pleased to offer her a short-term residency through August 2009.
