Kristin La Flamme
Kristin sees herself as an artist who sews. Her work combines elements of traditional quilting with common domestic forms such as aprons and bedding. The cutting and re-stitching inherent in quilt making can be seen as a metaphor for the turmoil of military life with its many moves and separations. While primarily a quiltmaker, she is not opposed to using any technique or material if it is appropriate to the message to be conveyed in the artwork. Life as a military spouse with its frequent moves and opportunities to learn about various cultures inform Kristin's work, both with personal insights and social commentary.
