The heart and soul of “The Kelly”… of course, it’s our artists, members, volunteers and exhibition sponsors.  We would love for you to learn more about them!

Libby J. Christensen

In background, Libby's original design lap quilt, "Unchain Myh Heart, Locked in a Box" made of wood-printed and gold-printed fabric for the Sawdust and Rust exhibit.

When Libby Christensen retired from teaching English at South University, she was eager to spend time on creative efforts.  Her favorite mediums are photography and fabric.  She especially likes nature  and travel shots and has had at least a half dozen photos published as international finalists. 

She’s also the queen of her domain, https://www.sewgocreate.com , for which she’s designed 100 quilting patterns, including writing the instructions, creating digital illustrations, and managing her website, besides making the sample quilts.

She uses  her skills for The Kelly as well, writing the blog, photo-documenting events,  helping with labels, making computer posts and communicating with the Art Associates .  The past two years she’s co-chaired the Artists Market and currently volunteers as a docent in the gallery.
