Jo Drueke has been working with fabric for almost all her life. Currently, her work reflects the love she has for the varied land and habitats found in Nebraska as well as the garden she maintains. She has shown her fiber art work in Lincoln, Omaha, Seward, Grand Island and Scottsbluff as a member of the Midwest Fiber Art Alliance, Studio Art Quilters Associates and FiberWorks. Below are her thoughts on the creation of Earth’s Strata.
“An eco-dyeing process utilized Earth’s plants and minerals to create unique textiles. Fabric is joined together to represent the soil and depth of the earth’s layers. Strata, the earth rock layers, are indicated by the quilting lines.”
