Denyse Schmidt

A graduate of Rhode Island School of Design, Denyse began creating quilts as a commercial venture in 1996. Intrigued by the rich historical nature of quilts and inspired by beauty born of necessity, she adds her distinctive aesthetic sensibility of clean, spare lines, rich colour and bold graphics to this rich art form, and has won acclaim from the worlds of art, design and craft.

In addition to designing and making quilts, Denyse is an author, fabric designer, lecturer and teacher.

Denyse's studio is located in a historic textile building in Bridgeport, Connecticut.
