About Visual Quilting

     Everyday wonders exists right under our noses, but in the chaos of our daily lives most people don’t have time to stop and notice. My "visual quilts" are the roses I stop to smell.  Slowing down to appreciate the beauty of ordinary things is tremendously rewarding.  I take textural photographs of life’s details and compile the images into "visual quilts” with themes like rocks, tree bark, leaves, etc. Each quilt is filled with images of beautiful everyday things that we might otherwise overlook.


About the artist

     As a native Vermonter, Michael Farnsworth has always felt a strong connection to nature. Growing up in Shelburne, Vermont he often went on hiking excursions, and trips to national parks with his family. The time outdoors cultivated his love of photography and painting landscapes, and eventually prompted Michael to earn his photography degree from Briarcliffe College in New York. He has been exhibiting his artwork successfully since 1999. Now as a resident of Stowe, Vermont, Michael continues to spend time outdoors, meditating on the scenic beauty around him, and transforming the beautiful landscapes before him into visual quilts and paintings.

 

     Michael's passion is for the places we live in and the mark we leave on the land. He strives to help people see the importance of place and the gift of living within such a beautiful world. Whether you live in a city loft in New York City, or in a quiet country retreat in Stowe, Michael's artwork calls you home to nature.
