About the Author:
Lesley Riley never intended to be a full-time, professional artist. She just followed her passion in the small blocks of time she carved out while raising six children. Now, as an internationally known instructor and multi-media artist, Lesley works in botanical printing, mixed and digital media, paint and of course, fabric. In 1999 she turned her initial passion for fabric, photos, color and the written word into a dream occupassion that continues to delight and inspire creatives and art lovers everywhere. A quilter since 1971, Lesley has an extensive background in using color and pattern to create innovative art quilts, fabric collage and modern botanical prints.

Lesley has written several books and articles and has been a guest on several episodes of Quilting Arts TV, profiled on The Quilt Show and is an educator for Golden Artist Colors. Her line of botanical inspired fabric is licensed with Northcott Fabrics.

In Lesley's ongoing effort to find the best ways for quilters and mixed-media artists to get permanent imagery on fabric, she introduced Lesley Riley's TAP Transfer Artist Paper-the state-of-the-art technology for iron-on transfers to fabric and other surfaces. The Craft and Hobby Association named it the CHA Innovation Award Winner in winter 2011.
