About Marie Kajdasz
My journey in stitching began as a child when my grandmother taught me to sew. Studies in interior design, and a degree in visual arts, led to a keen interest in art history, architecture and children’s literature. This influences the design of my images, which are both real and imagined.
Contemporary materials and techniques have enhanced my creativity, and allowed me to develop my personal approach in creating my fibre art.
I have exhibited my quilts in galleries in solo, invitational, and juried exhibitions, including the Ontario Juried Quilt Show, the Grand National, and the “Canada Uncovered” exhibit at the Museum of the American Quilter’s Society.
Awards include the Amy Hallman Synder Purchase Award, and Best Small Quilt at the Ontario Juried Quilt Show. My work has been seen in numerous publications since 1993.
Having retired from teaching elementary school I now share my knowledge by lecturing and teaching fibre art workshops.
