Helene Knott’s story

I was born and raised on the Monterey Peninsula in central California, a beautiful area that served as an inspiration to set me onto a creative path for life. From a very early age I showed a keen interest in art, starting with drawing and painting and exploring different mediums for my self-expression as I matured in years and experience. Fortunately, my parents recognized my interest and encouraged me in my pursuits. As a young adult I studied art in college though life, a child and an extensive home remodel interfered and I did not complete my education with a degree.


I am blessed with proficient drawing and illustration skills and have explored a number of artistic mediums including painting, stained glass, metalsmithing and embroidery. In the early 70′s, I turned my attention to fiber and fabrics with a focus on quilting. Quilting was experiencing a renaissance in popularity and making a gradual transition from utilitarian craft to an art form.


For the last 42 years or so, fiber and quilting has been my primary medium. I love exhibiting my work and have expanded my interest to include teaching my skills and knowledge to others to inspire a new generation of quilters and fiber artists, along with designing commercial quilt patterns.


In 1991, my family moved to Portland and I took a hiatus from regular employment to explore fiber arts and manage the two acres of property that we now live on. Over the years, I had won many awards at local, regional and national quilt shows and the recognition served me well in promoting myself as a teacher. I have expanded into designing commercial quilting patterns and currently have a line of patterns that are published by Story Quilts and continue working for them part time as an in-house designer.
