Robin Ferrier is a Quilt Artist living on Maui. She is best known for her organic designs, her intense use of color, and her thoughtful attention to shape and repetition. She considers herself a colorist and has developed her own style of fabric dyeing which she calls “Flat Dyeing.”
Her work has been published in “Quilting Arts Magazine,” “Art Quilting Studio,” and Island Heritage’s “Contemporary Quilts of Hawaii” Calendar. Exhibitions include Art Maui, juried shows at the Hui No’eau, the Diamond Resort, Art Quilt Tahoe and most recently the Etui Gallery in New York.
Robin graduated with a BA from the University of Hawaii where she completed coursework in the fine arts program with an emphasis on photography. She went on to become a nurse and is currently working in the Intensive Care Unit at Maui Memorial. She teaches classes on quilt making as well.
Her current work is split between two series. Her “Elements” series investigates designs, which utilize organic shapes, plain fields of color, repetition and contrast. Her second series is collection of baby quilts she calls “Improv Baby Quilts.” These are story quilts that depict whimsical playful scenes. Composition utilizing hand-cut edges is the focus of all of her work and her belief is that the hand-cut line is unique and personal to the quilter, it’s organic, and it helps identify a quilt as being “hand-made.”
“My work likes somewhere between geometric color studies and organic abstractions, which are inspired by my imagination and patterns from my every day life and fueled by my love for color.”
