The Thread – My Creative Journey
Join Denyse Schmidt, former graphic designer and graduate of RISD, as she takes you on a richly visual (and sometimes hilarious) journey highlighting the twists and turns, the influences and inspirations, that led to her unique quilts becoming a commercial venture in 1996. Drawn to the deep historical nature of quilts and inspired by beauty born of necessity, Denyse adds her distinctive aesthetic sensibility – clean, spare lines, vibrant color and bold graphics – to this rich art form.
