About

The Pops and momma rose story...

Hello friends, I'm Pops and here is our story. I met Momma Rose in 2016 through an online seniors dating site and we fell in love, married, and discovered we both thrived on being creative and making art. I was a retired businessman and had wanted to be an artist since high school. After 45 years of chasing money as a retailer and consultant I retired, enrolled in art school, and earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts with magna cum laude honors. My much younger fellow students affectionately nicknamed me "Pops" and I embraced my new moniker as my artist name. Bronze and iron sculpture, charcoal drawings, collage and artist sketchbook journals were my go to mediums in my first artistic endeavors. Momma Rose, my beautiful wife, is a quilter, needle artist, jewelry maker, and floral arranger and is called "Momma Rose" by her kids and grandkids. Our art quilting journey together began one day in 2017. when I wanted to learn to quilt something funky for a sketchbook cover. I asked Momma Rose to show me how to quilt. I'm a "hands on" learner so naturally I loved having Momma Rose reach around me while I was sitting at the sewing machine.  Momma Rose had to show Pops how to do it…and, oh boy did she ever! From that day on, I was hooked. As the years have progressed Pops and Momma Rose have made the most beautiful art quilts together! That’s our story and we're sticking to it…

Inspiration

Our inspiration for improv art quilt designs comes from many sources but most often the quiltmakers of Gees Bend have influenced us with abstract designs and unique interpretations of traditional quilt blocks. The softness of hand quilting and the dimensional quality of the quilting process is our inspiration to create unique art quilts for home decor.

Techniques

Our process can be described as wonky, quirky, scrappy, bohemian, improv, and experimental. The design wall is where it all comes together. The process is guided by the results of each step along the way. Very little is pre-planned or exact. The SURPRISE is the reward.
