Artist Statement

For me, the joy of being an artist is the dialogue that opens between me and the viewer. It is my hope that the impressionistic images I create spark the viewer's imagination while allowing freedom to rely on his or her own experiences to personalize an interpretation. I work each piece individually, painting lines and using color to evoke a sense of energy and momentum, using my distinct style to build a body of art with diversity and spontaneity. The tactile quality of art quilts, combined with the surface design techniques I use, deliver the results I seek and provide me the opportunity to articulate visually that which I cannot express in words.

Sandra LH Woock has always considered her affinity for fiber to be a driving force and passion, while research and discovery are necessities that allow freedom for her exploration of new material and techniques. She earned a B.S. in Design, Fashion from the University of Cincinnati and an MFA in Sculpture from the University of Illinois. In 1996, after working in papermaking, printmaking and acrylics, she returned to fiber art. Her art quilts have a recognizable style and are juried into notable national exhibitions. Her work is included in publications as well as art collections. In 2003, she moved from Colorado to Bethesda, Maryland, where she resides with her family.
