GUEST ARTIST:                           Lysa Flower

Lysa Flower grew up among makers, collectors and by necessity inventors. Although she’s not sure her grandfather’s jet engine mounted to the back of a boat was a necessity, it was a design challenge she could appreciate.

Inevitably Lysa (pronounced Lisa) also became a maker and collector. Mixed in with being a child of the 80’s she fell deeply, madly in love with pop culture. It was only a matter of time before she started inventing her own modern sewing and pattern designs for creative, DIY crafty types.

Her designs are bright, graphic, optimistic and colorful, steeped in everyday moments, laced with small observations that often trigger memories. She calls this, seeking the extraordinary in the everyday ordinary.

Nestled between the ocean, immense trees and mountains, Lysa lives in the Fraser Valley near Vancouver, Canada.  She  was a co-founder of the Fraser Valley Modern Quilt Guild.
