Andrea Brokenshire (AMB Fiber Art and Design) is a national and international award winning fiber artist and instructor from Round Rock, Texas who specializes in contemporary art quilts which depict botanical imagery inspired by her photography. She received a Bachelor of Science degree in Zoology from Oregon State University in 1984. She combines her love of the natural world and fabric with her art. Andrea’s art quilts depict large scale flora appliquéd and then thread-painted onto a “confetti “ background of multiple fabrics reminiscent of the impressionistic era. “I try to express the essence of a flower with fabric. The curve of a petal, the vibrancy of color and the diversity of flora to me is sexy... beautiful. For me, the creative process is a journey as essential as breathing. An expression of self.”
