Quilting Artists

Cheryl Dineen Ferrin

Cheryl Dineen Ferrin creates large-format portraits with a vibrant palette of silk and cotton fabrics. The resulting "Pop" nature of this combination has inspired people to describe her work as "Andy Warhol-Meets-Quilting-Bee."

She melds her childhood needle arts experience with a high-tech background and her love of the figure, to create striking and sensitive portraits.

Cheryl designs the majority of fabrics she uses in her artwork. Her ability and flair for creating digitally-developed and printed designs has further expanded her opportunity to make truly unique portrait art quilts.

Cheryl has settled in southwestern Michigan where she maintains a quiet, contemplative home. Her rural setting and its relatively close proximity to Chicago, allows her the right social balance to feed her creative muse. She has a degree in Art and Economics from a small, liberal arts college. Prior to working full-time in her studio, she worked in marketing and public relations, and journalism.
