A fibre artist has been selected as this year’s artist in residence at the Summerland Art Gallery.

Brandy Maslowski has been quilting for the past 12 years and has done fibre art for the past six years.

She also teaches quilting and fibre art across Canada.

Maslowski started quilting in 2000, when preparing to have her child. She wanted to make a baby blanket, similar to the one her grandmother had made for her.

After that project, she tried working with different colour schemes and designs.

One of the classes she teaches is on how to make traditional baby blankets.

Later, she branched out into other fibre art techniques.

As she got some of her work into galleries, she realized she wanted to do more with quilting and fibre art.

In the past year, she has launched a business in fibre art and as a result, she has not been able to devote as much time to her art.

“Now that I’ve landed the artist in residency role, I can separate my business from my art,” she said.

Maslowski also writes poetry and is working on a project which incorporates fibre art and the written word.

“I want to be able to synch my poetry and my art,” she said.

Maslowski will also offer four classes while working as the artist in residence. The first of these is on Nov. 3.

Her studio, at the rear of the Summerland Art Gallery on Main Street, is open Monday to Friday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
