Carol Seeley CAQ/ACC 2007 Teacher of The Year
Carol’s work covers a wide range from the traditional quilting style, to the more contemporary style with her abstract designs and her realistic west coast landscapes.
Carol’s contemporary pieces depict the places in her life, real and imagined. From the coastal scenes of her home to the imaginings that take her to far away places. Many of her pieces are a symbol of that desire within all of us to be free, to explore the infinite spaces of our mind.
Carol enjoys fibre as a medium because it is soft, flexible, forgiving yet versatile. She uses extensive quilting & embellishment in her work to create depth and texture to entice the viewer into the surface. She enjoys combining textiles with other mediums such as thread painting, beading, felting, cheesecloth, fibre and found objects.
Carol’s work has been exhibited in galleries and private homes in North America and Europe. Her work has been juried into national and international quilt and art shows such as Quilt Canada, The World Quilt Competition, Gibson’s Landing Fibreart Symposium, the Pacific Northwest Quilt Festival and American Quilter’s Society Quilt Show. For her contemporary style work, she has won the Award of Excellence at the 2005 and 2006 Grand National Fibre Art Show as well as the 2006 show’s Viewer’s Choice. Locally she received an Award of Excellence and Viewer’s Choice at the 2007 Campbell River and District Public Art Gallery’s Members Show and the 2006 Gibson’s Landing Symposium. Most recently she placed third in the World Quilt Competition and first in Quilt Canada 2008 for her work in the Traditional category.
