Hi, I’m Barb Forrister and I am a fiber artist. I am a member of International Quilt Association (IQA), Studio Art Quilt Associates (SAQA), American Quilter Society, Austin Fiber Arts (AFA), Dallas Quilt Guild (DQG) and Austin Area Quilt Guild (AAQG). I make my own original designs and I usually begin with a painted and or dyed surface and then build from there. I absolutely adore texture. My goal is to capture the viewer's attention and interest through both visual and tactile means. I try to accomplish this by adding tulle, organza, organdie, chiffon, cheesecloth, and heat distressed plastics to impart texture to my work.
