Lyric Kinard

Cary, North Carolina, USA

Lyric is an award winning artist with a passion for sparking the creativity she knows each of her students to possess.

With playful support and gentle encouragement she will take you through your first steps on a new path, seeing the world through the eyes of an artist.
As an artist, author and educator she transforms cloth into art in her studio and timid spirits into confident creatives                                                   in the classroom.

‘The tactile nature of cloth, its texture, richness and malleability are what have drawn me to this medium. Quilts hold a particular fascination for me – works of art imbedded in an object of utility.’

Lyric was voted 2011 ‘Teacher of the Year’ by the International Association of Professional Quilters. She is author of the book Art + Quilt: design principles and creativity exercises.

She has written extensively for Quilting Arts Magazine and has appeared on Quilting Arts TV and The Quilt Show. She teaches worldwide both live and through DVD workshops and online.
