Ever since Sherri Lynn Wood unwittingly defied the sexist dress code at Wiley Junior High School with a modest sundress of her own creation, she experienced sewing as a source of creative expression, subversive resistance, and personal empowerment. This formative experience has established a trajectory of restorative social practice throughout her career as a quilt maker, sculptor, teacher, author, improviser, activist, and healer. Currently based in Cincinnati, OH, Wood is the recipient of a Joan Mitchell Foundation Painters & Sculptors Grant, two MacDowell Colony Fellowships, and artist residencies at the Joan Mitchell Center and the Headlands Center for the Arts. She recently completed a four-month residency at Recology San Francisco, where she undertook the task of presenting a body of work made completely from materials scavenged from the city dump. She holds an MFA in sculpture from The Milton Avery Graduate School for the Arts at Bard College and a Masters of Theological Studies from Emory University in Atlanta. She has been improvising quilts as a creative life practice for 30 years, and is considered a master at her craft. Her best selling publication The Improv Handbook for Modern Quilters: A Guide to Creating, Quilting & Living Courageously (Abrams, 2015) provides scores, or frameworks, for flexible patterns and creative exploration, along with practical instruction in stitching techniques and color theory.
