I worked in high-tech before turning textile artist and landscape quilter. I’ve always been intrigued by color. Before moving to
I worked in publishing, supervising the printing of children’s books created by
master illustrators. After immigrating to Israel , while working as a
technical writer in hi-tech, I sought a creative outlet and started quilting.
At first I was attracted by the structured, triangles-and-squares simplicity of
traditional designs. It was only later that I branched out to create
contemporary designs of my own. Israel
Today I prefer creating fabric landscapes using raw-edge appliqué to traditional quilting. I particularly like creating handmade quilt art that reflects the people and places of the
Land. I am drawn by the beauty of the landscapes and the unique
colors of Israeli society. I have built a repertoire of landscapes of the
natural wonders here like the Dead Sea and the Sea of
Galilee. Currently I am working on a series of “moments in time at
marketplace”. One of these pieces is hanging at the Jerusalem Theater. Jerusalem

There is so much material to work with here, I will never be bored. I am still finding my way and my voice and loving every minute of it.
I teach private students from my studio at home and sell my designs at my on-line store, cindyrquilts.etsy.com. My work can be found on my website, cindyrquilts.com.
