Artist’s Biography

Tierney is a quilt designer and natural dyer in upstate NY. When she's not designing, she's happily making progress on personal pieces such as art quilts and hand stitched garments. Having earned her BFA from NYS College of Ceramics and Design at Alfred University with a concentration in drawing and painting, Tierney brings her painterly style, love of pattern and storytelling to her work today. 

Learning the ancient art of shibori dyeing at Arrowmont in 2006 was Tierney's first exposure to hand dying fabric. From there, she went on to make her first art quilt which was shown in the 2008 Quilts=Art=Quilts juried exhibit. She has been published in Quilting Arts Holiday Gifts Magazine 2013 and 2014. Teaching and speaking venues have included Squam Art Workshops, Quilters Consortium of NYS and area quilt guilds. For three consecutive years, Tierney has participated in a long distance teaching experience with The Palouse-Prairie School Midsummer Night's Dream project. Her naturally dyed fabrics were most recently featured throughout the projects in Karen Lewis's book Wabi-Sabi Sewing. Today, Tierney dyes, teaches and sells her wares.
