Lee McComas

Lea McComas is an acclaimed fiber artist, teacher, author, and founder of the Border Wall Quilt Project . With a life-long interest in fiber, Lea began sewing at age 6 and quilting at 16. She earned an M.A. in Education, and has been a public school educator for almost 40 years, including 9 years spent serving military families stationed overseas. While living abroad, Lea immersed herself in the local cultures, learning the arts and traditions of the people with whom she lived. This included studying carpet weaving in Turkey, and fabric dying in Japan.

Upon her return to the states in 2001, Lea discovered art quilting. Simultaneously, she began a study of classic European art, and developed a keen interest in portrait and figurative works. Her current techniques and compositions are a synthesis of these passions as she uses thread and fabric to create realistic pictorial works. Her award-winning portrait and genre quilts have been exhibited around the world, and featured in numerous publications and online platforms. She is a 2-time winner of the Master Award for Thread Artistry at the International Quilt Festival in Houston. Lea shares the extensive knowledge and techniques behind her award-winning quilts in lectures, workshops, online courses, magazine articles, and her book Thread Painted Portraits.
