Cheryl Lamon, Artist Bio
One of my greatest joys in life is working with color. I like bright and bold colors. I blend these colors to make things out of fabric and add different threads and decorative stitching to create motion and depth. Each piece is made with artistic energy and creativeness whether it be a quilt or wall hanging.
I was raised on a farm and growing up our Mother taught us how to sew. There were 3 girls in our family and we each gravitated to a certain genre. My sister, Jane, liked to make clothing especially from wool. Marcia spent her time quilting with traditional muted fabrics. Myself, I was looking for something bold and colorful. At that time I also made clothing.
After college, I ended up in my chosen field of Medical Technology. My husband was in education so we moved around a lot until we landed in Lanesboro. I was in business for 30 years and now I can pursue my passion of working with fabrics and color.
