Who is Leni Levenson Wiener?
Leni Levenson Wiener is a figurative fabric collage artist (often described as art quilts), focusing on the expressive and universal nature of body language. She has written four books, Pictorial Art Quilt Guidebook, 3 Fabric Quilts, Photo-inspired Art Quilts and Thread Painting and has been featured in compilation books, Conscience of the Human Spirit, The Life of Nelson Mandela: Tributes by Artists from South Africa and the United States; 1000 Quilt Inspirations; The Best of Quilting Arts; and Art Quilt Portfolio: People and Portraits.
Her artwork has been included in many juried and invitational exhibitions across the US and around the world; and her solo museum show, Park Bench Stories continues to tour.
Besides teaching workshops at quilt guilds and quilt shows on the topic of creating art quilts from photographs, Leni frequently gives talks to quilters on color, value and print scale; finding your artistic voice, and trunk shows of her evolution as an artist. In addition, she coaches emerging artists individually to help them find their unique artistic voice.
Leni is proud to be a BERNINA Ambassador and regular contributor to the We All Sew blog site and numerous quilt magazines.
