Cindy Friedman in front of The Outing at Quilt National'11
Cindy has a lifelong obsession with fiber. A childhood filled with sewing and needle arts and careers as an Industrial Designer and a Fashion Designer led to a convergence in the art quilt medium in the early 1990's. Her work has always reflected her fascination with human body forms, their construction, and function as they interact with architectural and geometric shapes, grids, and patterns. Cindy's current work continues to explore the possibilities of fiber in art.
The art is linked by textile references and quilt making traditions and fuses multiple disciplines from drawing to intricate needlework. Her internationally exhibited work can be found in gallery exhibitions, private collections and locally in the Hospital of the University of PA, Infectious Disease Clinic and the Philadelphia Ronald McDonald House.
