VET will talk about her artist journey of building her skill set through art by drawing, painting, sewing, weaving and sculpting. The transition to mixed media was a natural progression as she began involving recycled found objects.

As a recipient of the National Endowment of the Arts Award, VET worked on a collaborative multi-disciplinary performance and exhibition at the Dallas Museum of Art.

She is a native Texas artist who incorporates recycling awareness and arts education within her projects and residencies.

With VET’s help, we will create a Shoo-fly Quilt Block from the Freedom Quilt Codes Project. Blocks will be made from fabric, using glue and hand stitching. All supplies are provided, including embellishments and handouts.
