Eileen Doughty’s specialties are creating three-dimensional thread sculptures and landscape art quilts. She also makes fiber art jewelry.
Eileen loves the concept of “place” and so her preferred subject matter is the landscape. Her previous career as a cartographer has been useful for her fiber art, since both require understanding how people view and interpret colors, pattern and symbols. Currently Eileen’s work focuses on exploring what makes fiber art so unique: texture, freedom of shape of the “canvas” (not limited to a rectangle), and employing three rather than two dimensions.
