About Emilie Belak
Emilie always has had many creative hobbies and interests. Since the first quilting class in 1985, she has taken many courses with gifted quilt artists and has learned something from each of them.
Other artists' work, nature, flowers, color, photographs, and fabric are her inspiration. She uses a variety of methods and materials to express her ideas.
In her quilts, Emilie strives to express the beauty of nature, and to give herself and the viewer the joy, pleasure, and tranquility that is inherent in all things beautiful. A major piece takes her a year to complete.
Emilie is an internationally recognized quilt artist. Her quilt In Praise of Poppies was chosen as one of the ‘100 Best American Quilts of the 20th Century’. Many of Emilie’s quilts were published in magazines and books.
