In one original photo, Gorman’s great-aunt Bernadette had an enormous bow in her hair. “It lent itself to bird wings and I started from there. ” Originally, Gorman was an illustrator for text and trade books. She started quilting when her children were young. “I made about three traditional quilts but my corners didn’t meet—I’m not someone who likes to draw buildings or cars or straight lines—and I thought ‘I’m never going to make it in this world,’ ” she says. Her home state of Ohio, however, was at the heart of early art quilting and proved the perfect place to explore the medium: Gorman took fiber classes in the early 1990s but continued working in a number of media, including collage and drawing on clayboard.
In addition to connecting her to other makers, reusing materials frees Chin to express herself without concern about damaging new and expensive goods. “The artist’s idea is more important than the medium,” she says, a concept she shares with her art students at Tabor College. Chin embraces unconventional materials and techniques in part because of circumstance. An immigrant to the United States from Seoul, Korea, Chin lived on both coasts before landing in Michigan, then Kansas. “I lost my language, so for a long time I was voiceless,” she says.
While Gorman’s past influences her subject matter, her present has contributed to changes in technique. She is one of three studio artists helping clients with developmental disabilities create artwork that generates income at Columbus’s Goodwill Art Studio and Gallery. “There are several Goodwill artists who do line drawings all the time,” she says. “The looseness of their approach was very inspiring. Taking risks and experimenting has opened up for me since I’ve worked at Goodwill. My work still looks pretty organized and controlled, but I’m not going at it with the same mentality.
