Lisa Call is an artist working in fiber who creates bold geometric quilts that are composed of her richly colored hand dyed fabric. Her work is abstract but draws elements from many places: her love of the colors and geological forms of the southwest, her interest in human-made structures for containment such as fences and stone walls, and her exploration of her own internal psychological walls and boundaries.
Call's award winning work has been shown in exhibits throughout the United States and in Europe including Craft Forms at the Wayne Art Center, National Crafts, Quilt National, and Layers of Meaning: The Art Quilt 2005 at the Contemporary Crafts Museum in Portland, Oregon. Her piece, Structures #11, was selected for the cover of the Quilt National 2003 catalog. Her first solo exhibition will be in 2006 at the Macky Gallery at the University of Colorado in Boulder. Structures #5 is included in the Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum's permanent collection Rooted in Tradition: Art Quilts of the Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum. Her work is included in the Town of Parker and Broomfield's College Hill Library public collections.
A self taught artist, Call began making one of a kind contemporary quilts in 1993. In 1997 she founded The Fiber Connection, a successful online artist support group. She received a Master of Science in Computer Science from the University of Wisconsin - Madison (1987) and a Bachelor of Arts in Computer Science from the University of California at Berkeley (1985). She was born in Tucson, Arizona in 1963. Having grown up in New Mexico she returned to the southwest in 1994 and settled in the Denver, Colorado area.
