Kerri Green Art Quilts
Contemporary Art Quilts
Kerri Green is a Dallas, Texas artist that works in fiber, thread and color to create contemporary quilts. Her quilts are imbued with graphic detail and motifs that draw the viewer in for a closer look. She hand-dyes much of the fabric used in her work and combines fabric, thread and batting to create quilt sandwiches that are delectable to the eyes.
Kerri’s work has been exhibited in various juried quilt shows and venues in the U.S. She is a regular exhibitor and award winner in the annual Quilters Guild of Dallas show, where in 2017 she was awarded Best in Show for her quilt “Fractured Fractals.” Her quilt “Prometheus” was included in the 20th Biennial Quilt National and was also the cover art for the show book.
Kerri was born and raised in Muskogee, Oklahoma. Her natural love of color, fabric and sewing was notable early on. She was sewing her own school clothes by her early teens. This love of sewing, art and craft led her to study interior design in college and go on to design and produce one-off slipcovers and draperies for her interior design clients. When the need for drapery hardware arose, she designed and created her own line of drapery hardware that became a thriving business, Paris Texas Hardware, which she ran for twenty years. After selling her company, Kerri went back to her roots and began sewing quilts.
When Kerri is not in her Dallas studio making art, she is with her husband traveling in their Airstream travel trailer and gathering inspiration for her next quilt project.
