Lectures

Ready by Tracey Lawko detail

Sources of Inspiration

In this 60 minute slide lecture, Tracey reveals how her textile art has developed –inspired by childhood interests and continual experimentation. An embroiderer, quilter, longarmer and textile artist, her work has been juried into numerous national and international shows. Her finely stitched landscapes celebrate the beauty of rural Ontario. Her dimensional still-lifes combine modern longarm stitching with traditional hand embroidery. As Tracey presents her journey, she invites participants to consider their own Sources of Inspiration.

Tracey brings samples of her work for participants to see up close and is happy to answer questions. She is comfortable speaking to small-sized groups as well as groups of 500 or more.

To assist group organizers, Tracey provides her own computer and digital projector for her lectures. The meeting room should have dimmable lights, projection screen, microphone, extension cord, and display tables.
