Ronni Harris captures memories and favorite places using acrylic paint on fabric then quilted and embellished using a verity of threads, hand died silk ribbons and other found objects. Her “quilted paintings” are unique in both concept and design.

Raised in the Bay Area, she was awarded a scholarship to the San Francisco Academy of Art where she began painting. In 1970 she was a flight attendant on an international carrier. During one of her assignments she picked up a stitchery kit to stay awake on long night flights. That led to combining the two mediums.

“I love to capture the feeling of wonderful places I have both visited and
lived,” explains Harris about her paintings. Now living in Astoria her focus is on the beautiful and ever changing light.
