As described by the artist herself:
SCHNEIDER “ is project is a quilted fabric
album of everyday people of Af-
rican descent inspired by vintage
photographs. My goal is to not
only provide a simple snapshot of a
FINANCIAL person but also to communicate an
entire story in one piece of artwork.
I create portraits of people that
include many clues of their inner
thoughts, their heritage, their actu-
GROUP al emotions, and even their future.”
Butler, a formally trained Af-
rican American artist of Ghana-
ian heritage, straddles the line
between creating with paint on
canvas and creating with ber by
fashioning magni cent quilts and
for professional, sound advice elevating a medium hitherto des-
ignated as craft into one that is
high art. Butler forges an individ-
on your business or personal ual and expressive signature style
that draws upon her own cultural
background and experiences, cre-
tax and ﬁnancial situation ating a narrative and identity that
inform her quilts. She creates a
story around each image, and, in
her choice of fabrics, she uses tex-
ture, color and the cultural origin
of the cloth as part of a personal
iconography that makes state-
ments about society and identity.
