Artist Biography: Candace McCaffery learned sewing from her mother at early age. After graduating from college with a BS in forestry and wildlife ecology in 1973 she began exploring the technique of quilting. Candace has developed her own contemporary style and technique. Fiber reactive dyes, hand-painted, printed, hand-dyed, and marbilized fabrics are all elements of the original designs for her pillows and wall hangings. Frogs, lizards, turtles, and snakes are often immortalized in her art and reflect her love, respect, and humor for the natural world. Candace enjoys sharing her work with others and has won numerous awards including the "Best of Show".
