Fiber Artist Valerie Maser-Flanagan
Photographer David G. Hawkins

Valerie Maser-Flanagan: “My approach is improvisational, starting with a general idea,
a palette of colors, and a blank design wall. Freely cut lines in cloth blend shape and
color into an initial composition. I find this approach intriguing because of the fluid
motion created when freely cutting lines and shapes. It is a dynamic approach because
the interaction of line, shape and color cause unexpected results that the artist needs to
continually respond to.”

David Hawkins: “We have paired a photo of mine with each of Valerie’s pieces in a way
that compliments or comments on her theme. All of Valerie’s pieces are abstracts, as
are many of mine. It has been so exciting for us to see these combinations come
together. Often, the pair is greater than the sum of its parts.”
