Author Louise HandleyAbout the Author

Louise Handley, a fifth-generation Oregonian, was born and educated in Portland. She learned to sew on her mother's old treadle sewing machine. As an adult, Louise pursued decorative painting and became nationally recognized as a self-taught artist and teach of decorative art. She also refined her quilting skills and began designing and making her own quilts. She has combined her artistic and quilting skills to create many award-winning quilts. One day, while she was placing photos into her family album, the idea of fabric silhouettes came to mind. Fabric Silhouettes is her first book.
