The Artist’s Studio :: Folk Fibers

May 6th, 2013

Next up in our artists series is an extra special, behind-the-scenes look into the studio of Maura Ambrose of Folk Fibers. If you didn’t catch our first feature, we’ve partnered with MSN to peek into the creative lives of three super talented and very different artists, and today’s subject is no exception. After spending the day with Maura, I still left her home with a burning question: How on earth does she do it all? While quilting is intricate and involved as is, Maura throws the art of natural dying into the mix to create quilts that are altogether classic yet modern. If you’ve already seen her work, chances are you have a Folk Fibers quilt on your shopping bucket list, and if you haven’t…well, we’re thrilled to introduce the two of you. Wynn accompanied me to Maura’s charming home and studio on the East Side to capture her in action.

    Amazing!! Can’t wait to see her stuff at Levis!

  5. Great quote and so true!! “Being an artist is one thing, and being an entrepreneur is another. It’s a magical combo if you have a personality that can be both. And if you don’t, partner with someone who complements your strengths and weaknesses.”

    • I absolutely loved that, too… I know several creatives who – when partnered up with someone business-minded – saw their careers really take off. And it’s happening to Maura before our eyes. Her career is sky-rocketing and I have a feeling it’s only the beginning!

    Does Maura ever have classes? I think that would be fun and a creative activity my friends would really enjoy!

  7. Great post! I really love supporting people who build their dreams based on their passions. And I love the quote, some very true words. Maura is definitely going places and living her version of the dream!
