Chris Roberts-Antieau | Biography

Chris Robert-Antieau creates heartwarming scenes that transform the everyday and the mundane with humor and whimsy. Her fabric vignettes are created through the use of applique, the process of deftly stitching and embroidering cut fabric pieces, and juxtaposed with sophisticated needlework, primitive painting, and humourous, hand-lettered texts to create a collaged 'fabric painting.' These high-sprited folk scenes often revolve around the trials and tribulations of the family dog or cat, as in Tree Climber, depicting two cats mischievously climbing up an ornamented Christmas tree. Antieau-Roberts, born in Brighton, Michigan in 1950, is collected nationally and internationally. Her work has been exhibited at the American Visionary Museum and is included in the collections of Oprah Winfrey, John Waters, Lyle Lovett, Senator Sam Nunn, and Bill Clinton.
