About the Author

Best known for her Fragment series of small fabric collages, Lesley is also an internationally known quilter and mixed-media artist with a passion for photos, color and the written word.  She has taught extensively in the US and as far away as Italy and Australia. Her art and articles have appeared in numerous publications and juried shows.  In her current position as Contributing Editor of Cloth Paper Scissors magazine, Lesley showcases new talent and mixed media art.  Her first book, Quilted Memories, brought new ideas and techniques to quilting and preserving memories.  Lesley's second book, Fabric Memory Books, combines fabric and innovative ideas with the art of bookmaking.

In her latest book, Fabulous Fabric Art with Lutradur (January 2009) takes a new material to a new level. Lesley defines Lutradur as ‘the magic in the middle’ – an art material that combines the best properties of both fabric and paper.

Lesley has filmed instructional DVDs with Creative Catalyst Productions and Quilting Arts. Not one to be camera shy, Lesley has also appeared on three episodes of Quilting Arts TV Season 1. With her art and her website, Lesley aspires to inspire others to find their own voice and share in the magic that is art.

In an ongoing effort to find the best ways for quilters and mixed media artists to get permanent photos on fabric, Lesley has introduced Transfer Artist Paper™ affectionately known as TAP™,  the state of the art technology for iron-on transfers to fabric.In 2010 Lesley sold the rights to TAP to her publisher, C&T. In January 2911, AP won The Most Innovative New Product award at the Winter CHA show.
