Inspired by the fluid and fun characteristics of the south her pieces show vibrant plant life through her take on the traditional southern quilting style. Residing in Atlanta, Kinard created this entire collection for the show this May.
“The boldness of my work can also be related to the Southern character. Beyond the well-kept exterior and femininity of a Southern woman, like my work, the women of the South can be strong, creative and playful. As related to the whole, to be Southern is to be happy and laid back, to say hello to strangers who you pass on the street, and to spend time sitting on the porch enjoying the simple beauty that nature provides.” To view Christy Kinard’s entire collection be sure to stop by 153 King Street.
