The Creative Process of Sonji Hunt

Medallion I
33" H x 22"W

We all struggle with and delight in the design process of our own work, and are intrigued by that of others. Rarely, though do we ever have the opportunity to be “the fly on the wall” and/or to peek over other artists’ shoulders as they make design decisions while creating in their studios. Sonji Hunt has invited us into her studio as she details step-by-step the process in which she was engaged during creation of “Medallion I”, her interpretation of a traditional medallion-styled quilt:
