ASTRID HILGER BENNETT
Seeking Scarlet, Art quilt

Bennett received her BFA in printmaking from Indiana University and has exhibited and taught at various locations throughout the country. She is a resident of Iowa City, Iowa.

Astrid Bennett makes large-scale art quilts, using hand painting, monoprinting, screen printing, batik, or immersion dyeing to create her compositions. She says, "I'm happiest with a brush in my hand, and art quilts allow me a large- scale, exuberant canvas. Although visually abstract, my work constantly mines the daily life experiences of family, society and the natural world, with a hefty dose of music to guide the hand."
