"Ida Lee Baker"

Original collage with found/sourced paper materials

From a collection inspired by the quilts of Gee's Bend

Artist Statement: What began as a passion project quickly evolved into a hands on paper quilting bee. Mother and daughter artists, Brenda Bogart and Stephanie Stephenson Walker, had always shared an interest in the story of Gee's Bend. The art of quiltmaking, taking what you have and turning it into something functional, provides much inspiration. However the true influence for Brenda and Stephanie was the strength of a community of women to create in a time of distress. Collage, they discovered, is not so different from quilting. It involves piecing together what you have to compose something beautiful and whole. In homage to the women in their family, the artists named the quilts after their female ancestors, many of whom quilted themselves.

Ida Lee Baker Baker Leonard, Brenda's paternal great grandmother (Stephanie's great great), lived December 20th, 1870 - March 17th, 1955.
