Susan Madden works in fabric, blending the traditional arts of quilting and basketry into unexpected forms. Madden layers bits of fabric, one small piece at a time, and lets her art quilts grown organically. Studying under Marilyn Miller, Jim Wilcox and others, Madden has worked in a wide variety of media prior to fabric, including serigraphs, pastels and oils. Madden’s serigraphs were accepted into the Utah Art Festival and Bountiful Art Center, and her work has been included in many juried shows. Ten years ago, her interest moved toward art quilting. Her long-term love of the Utah landscape and a year of weekly visits to Antelope Island to observe birds and plants and the waters of the Great Salt Lake, precipitated her current body of work.
