“I make Fabric Art because it’s what I love to do…To create something unique and reflective of how I feel. To explore sensations of interpretation and observation through the medium of textile and thread. To expand the expected. To follow an idea along an intuitive, spontaneous and progressive path. To play with flow and movement. To use the building blocks of abstraction, texture, colour, line and space to tell a story. To unlock the secret hidden within each scrap.” Cathie Ugrin is a Winnipeg based fabric artist whose work is characterized by a rich and inventive use of colour, and unique approach to geometrical design. She is the Exhibit and Events Coordinator as well as one of the founding members of the Textile and Fibre Artists of Manitoba.
