Virginia Abrams

Using silks and hand-dyed cottons Virginia creates art quilts with abstract designs inspired by the biomorphic shapes of the natural world. Her quilts have been shown in numerous exhibits across the United States and are in private collections. Her introduction into the world of art quilts began in 1997 and has been a nice fusion of her long time passion for fabrics and sewing, her interest in the natural world, and her formal education in chemistry and biochemistry. A native of the Finger Lakes region of New York State, she has lived in Hockessin, Delaware since 1971.
