Sherri Lynn Wood

Cincinnati, OH, USA


b. 1964   —   Ever since Sherri Lynn Wood unwittingly defied the sexist dress code at Wiley Junior High School with a modest sundress of her own creation, she experienced sewing as a source of creative expression, subversive resistance, and personal empowerment. Wood is the recipient of a Joan Mitchell Foundation Painters & Sculptors Grant and numerous artist residencies, including Recology San Francisco, Headlands Center For the Arts, and MacDowell. She holds a Masters in Fine Arts from Bard College and in Theological Studies from Emory University. She has been improvising quilts as a creative life practice for 30 years. Her best selling publication The Improv Handbook for Modern Quilters: A Guide to Creating, Quilting & Living Courageously (Abrams, 2015) provides scores, or frameworks, for flexible patterns and creative exploration.
