KAREN CUNAGIN teaches color and design in the fiber arts for the San Diego Community College District at the West City Campus in Point Loma. The themes in her art revolve around the intimate world of family, the garden and spiritual work. Though most of her textile compositions are machine sewn, she spends hours hand finishing many pieces with stitch, sequins, yo-yos... There may be painting, printing and other surface design as well. Karen’s work has been shown in Visions: The Art Quilt 2006, regional juried shows and international publications. In 2010 she completed four giant fruits/cloth sculptures (each 5 feet in diameter) that are permanently exhibited in the award-winning Fallbrook Library. Karen was nominated for the teacher of the year award 2011 by The Professional Quilters magazine. She serves on the board of the Visions Art Museum in San Diego. Presenting inspiring lectures, workshops and trunk shows for quilt guilds, museums and festival groups, Karen challenges her fellow fiber artists to take little risks in making beautiful work that can lead to important life decisions.
