    Deidre Scherer's stunning images in fabric and thread are familiar to millions. Her work graces the covers of several books, including the best-selling When I Am an Old Woman I Shall Wear Purple.

    Deidre's piecing, layering, and machine-sewing techniques produce extraordinarily realistic portraits and still-life compositions with a three-dimensional quality.

    Deidre Scherer's images of elderly women and men have appeared in more than ninety individual and group shows worldwide. Her art strives toward raising societal awareness concerning this stage of life. Deidre was honored at the 10th International Congress of Care of the Terminally Ill in 1994 for her advocacy on behalf of "the most frail among us." The story of Deidre's art and influences underscore her belief in a courageous and passionate response to making art in today's world.
