Leah Evans Map Quilts

Leah Evans is a textile artist, often using maps as part of her quilt work.

From her Artist's statement:
It is the use of maps in organizing our ideas of land that interests me most of all. Often people ask me for specifics about the places and symbols in my work. Most of my pieces are not consciously based on specific places. For me they are intimate explorations of map language and imagined landscapes. Through my research and experience I have decided that maps create more questions than they answer.
