Industrial Revolution, July 2017

Page Content: 
"During the first Industrial Revolution, the spinning jenny changed the way cloth was manufactured. Today, in the midst of the fourth industrial revolution, robotics and technology can manufacture anything locally at low cost and faster than ever. The design was inspired by the factories often associated with industrialization but references modernism through flat colors and geometric shapes that combine to illustrate the circuit board which is associated with contemporary technologies." –Silvia Sutters

A Brazilian with a background in fashion design and pattern-making, I recently became an avid quilter. When not sewing, I love to spend time with my husband and two daughters. Visiting art museums is one of our favorite activities and it often inspires my work. I am influenced by the colors, patterns and culture of my native country.
