Heidi Zielinski of Fiber Into Art by Heidi





I am a fiber artist creating non-representational or abstract art quilts that reflect the beauty of nature and life. I use color, line, and texture to create art to invoke a memory real or imagined of a place visited or a site once seen. Most of my work involves extensive free motion stitching to create texture, line and movement. Beadwork or other embellishment is added for additional interest.

I experiment with various surface design techniques which might inspire or complete my work including painting, dyeing, stamping, stenciling, weaving, felting, rusting, and discharging. I am inspired by cloth, color and stitch to create art that has emotion woven into its very fiber and that is open to interpretation by each viewer depending on their experiences, memories, and unique frame of mind.



Heidi’s work can be seen in several galleries in Western Montana where she lives, and on her website and blog. She has been in numerous national juried quilt, fiber art, and fine art shows and won some awards at the national level. Her work has been shown in several nationally distributed publications, including the Studio Art Quilt Association Journal. Heidi has had five solo gallery exhibitions and been included in numerous group exhibitions. She has had a number of articles published in quilting magazines and is now teaching art quilt classes.

    Your work is beautiful and inspirational. I’d love to see more! And I also live in Western Montana; so where exactly may I see more of your work? Seems a road trip with friends might be in order.

      I’m sorry I didn’t see your comment, Miriam! I show in Missoula at The Artist’s Shop on Higgins. Also at the River’s Mist Co-op in Stevensville on Main St. There are some pieces in the gift shop at the Lewistown Art Center as well. Watch for my article in Machine Quilting Unlimited Magazine in May issue! Thanks for the kind words!

      My business is not only an effort to sell my fiber art, but also to share and encourage, and hopefully inspire other artists, so I really appreciate your comment, Joyce! Thanks!
