About BarbaraHarmsFiberArt

I love the process of creating, following a tiny seed of an idea leads. The results can be surprising. I love that element of surprise.

I’m a fiber artist, I create original fiber art quilts and silk paintings, working in mixed media. I’ve been a painter all my life, Art is like a form of therapy.


MY APPROACH AND PROCESS

I’m a mixed media quilt artst, which alows the freedom to When I became aware of this new exciting art form, fiber art quilting, it drew me in.
It was an exciting change & a natural transition. As a fiber artist I’m able to use many skills & mediums developed from my background in art to make my art quilts.

When I’m struck by an image or a concept that excites me, a tiny seed of an idea forms, vague and blurred around the edges. I follow where that leads me. I work instinctively, with as little advanced planning.as I can.
As each need for a creative decision arises, I make the choices based on what feels right at the time. This creates many changes in the  direction that the quilt takes. There are many twists and turns along the way. The-- results can be surprising.
I love that element of surprise!
Sometimes everything just comes together and something special happens that exceeds my expectations. As I’m standing back looking at the finished piece, I’m thinking that this is one of my better ones. And I’m smiling like the Cheshire cat, pleased as punch with myself. Honestly, I’m like a 6-year old, running home from school with a drawing in hand to show Mom.
