Nana Montgomery

Nana Montgomery is an artist who makes contemporary quilts. Her early experience with quilting comes from her mother, who taught Nana to quilt at a young age. She has been making quilts ever since. Nana attended UC Santa Cruz where she studied painting and drawing, with a minor emphasis in Art History. Later, she completed her Master's Degree in Fine Art at SF State University where she developed a personal style that merged her quiltmaking with her painting experience. Nana was one of the first in the Textiles program at SF State to present quilts in the context of fine art. Her senior art show included a body of work consisting entirely of her art quilts. Nana also studied Graphic Design at the UC Santa Cruz Extension and is currently working as a graphic designer at her own company, Blue Shark Design Inc.. Her art quilts have been shown in one-person and group shows throughout the Bay Area, including several group shows at the San Jose Museum of Quilts and Textiles.
Quilting is my passion. I love the process and tactility of combining fabric and paint to create my images. My quilts are an expression of ideas and emotions from life experience and dreams. My compositions are pictorial, considering the whole surface of the quilt as a canvas. Abstracted into an archetypal symbol, a figure inhabits the landscape of the quilt, often a house shape which represents the different places where we live; both physically and emotionally. I am seeking to express both the universal and the personal experience of these emotional places.
