Laurie Swim has worked as an artist for more than 35 years developing unique and innovative treatments to fashion her imagery in textiles with fabric and thread. As a significant contribution and use of this medium, she has shared her art form and practice with others to create meaningful public art. She has also written three books, two published internationally, on quilt art. The Joy of Quilting with an Introduction by Alex Colville, 1984, made her an early leader in this field. Laurie’s third book, Rags to Riches: The Quilt as Art with an introduction by Mary Pratt was published in Canada in the fall, 2007.

Because her primary medium is fabric, Laurie has had a unique opportunity to combine fine art and public advocacy. Her large-scale works, completed with the help of volunteers from the community, are aesthetically significant; and by participating in the process of production, people are able to express their deeply felt concerns and remembrance. The resulting art is not only a celebration of the creativity of a community but it becomes an effective means of bringing the issues to public attention and instituting cultural change.
