Amy Ahlstrom is a contemporary urban quilter creating hypermodern fiber art. Drawing upon her background as a graphic designer and comix illustrator, Amy digitally photographs the visual details of cities—street art, signs, and architectural details—and collages these images via computer into quilt designs. The resulting quilts, crafted of raw silk and cotton, are tactile visual postcards of urban environments. Based in the Bay Area, Amy has designed urban-themed quilts from images of San Francisco’s Chinatown, North Beach, and Mission districts as well as from her trips to Tokyo, Kyoto, New York City and Chicago. Quilts from images of London, Paris and Amsterdam are in the works. Amy holds a Master of Fine Arts in Fiber from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Fiber from Northern Illinois University.
