Artists / Fomina Irina
I’m glad to meet you at this gallery and I hope you will like my quilts.
I’ve been working in different textile techniques for all my life, but I became interested in art-quilting only several years ago. In our country this art isn’t as popular as I’d like it to be so me and my colleagues are spreading it.
I take part in various regional and national exhibitions, festivals and competitions and I’m going to participate in European ones. My quilted pictures are bought for private collections in Ukraine and abroad.
