Biography

Linda Peetz Kramer

I have a Bachelor of Science in Art Education, and a Master of Arts in Art, both from Miami University in Oxford, Ohio.


As an artist, I have worked in various art media, including stained glass, pottery, bead work, photography, graphic arts, jewelry making, and silversmithing. I was introduced to contemporary quilting in 2003, and now I primarily work with fabrics and fibers, specifically, quilting and hand-dyeing fabric and garments.

My quilts have been included in regional, national, and international juried shows and invitational exhibits. I have quilts in private and public collections. I coordinated an invitation quilt exhibit at the Oxford Community Arts Center, and a quilt show of 40 quilts and a mini-quilt auction to accompany the musical “Quilters” also at the Oxford Community Arts Center, Oxford, OH.

In addition to quilting, I enjoy photography and have had photos juried into several shows, including the International Quilt Festival-Houston.

I live in Reily Township, Oxford, Ohio, which is in southwest Ohio. In 2012 I converted my potting shed into a quilting studio. (I'm so over gardening since I discovered quilting!) I quickly realized 168 square foot studio was too small. In 2013, I expanded the quilt studio to 456 square feet. In addition to the quilt studio, I converted my basement into a wet studio for fabric dyeing.

In September 2015, I retired as Director of Communications in the College of Engineering and Computing at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio. Prior to this, I was an art teacher in a public school system.

Being retired, I now get to spend time in both of my studios, and have the opportunity to return to teaching. However, this time, my teaching is about quilting, fabric dying, color, mandalas, and other fabric-related things I love. I also now enjoy giving trunk-show talks about my art and quilts.
