Lea McComas
United States

Lea McComas has had a lifelong passion for textiles and fiber arts. She stitched her first garment at age 6, and became a quilter at 16, learning skills from her great aunt. That first quilt was hand-pieced and hand quilted. Her first original design, paying tribute to the centennial of the Statue of Liberty in1986, was chosen as the Missouri state winner of the Great American Quilt Festival. It was viewed all over the world as part of a 3-year traveling exhibit of the Museum of American Folk Art. It can be viewed in the book 'All Flags Flying: American Patriotic Quilts as Expressions of Liberty'.

She traveled overseas in her thirties as a teacher for the Department of Defense. Five years in Turkey provided new opportunities to explore textiles, including a summer spent living in a remote Turkish village learning to weave Kilim rugs. This assignment was followed by 4 years in Okinawa. There, Lea acquired a love of Japanese textile design techniques, and an extensive collection of kimono fabrics.

Lea’s art has been featured in numerous national and international exhibitions, including Geneva, Vienna, Johannesburg, New York, Houston, Kansas City, and Denver. Her work has won awards at various national and international festivals.
She is a featured artist in the book 'Cutting-Edge Art Quilts', an episode of TheQuiltShow.com and she teaches online at CraftOnlineUniversity.com

Her work and articles on her techniques have appeared in many other publications including American Quilter, Quilter’s Newsletter, SAQA Journal, Quilting Arts, Surface Design Journal, Machine Quilting Unlimited, The Quilt Life, and Quilter’s Connection Magazine. Her first book, 'Thread-Painted Portraits: Turn Your Photos into Fiber Art', was released in 2014.

She currently leads the project ‘Border Wall Quilt Proyect’, which calls on textile artists to externalize their opinion on the topic.
