Works in fiber are a centuries old artistic expression. Contemporary artists, however, have found a whole new voice since the 1970's, creating unique one-of-a-kind pieces that are hung on the wall.

Marcia Hewitt Johnson began an art career in 1988, creating artquilts using her photos and photoquilts as design models.

Watching her create pieces on the wall, using strips of solid colored fabrics, it seems as though she stands with brush and paint palette.

This book chronicles not only twenty years of creating artquilts, but also the travels that inspired them. Artists finding their own voices will appreciate the development of Marcia's process, while enjoying travel adventures around the world.
