  Artist Statement

The intriguing thing about fabric art is that it provides both a visual and tactile interaction with the person who is engaged with it.


Kerby C. Smith has a Bachelor of Arts degree in Art from Hobart College. For many years the focus of his creative work was in traditional photography, winning awards at various venues in the west.
 He regularly shows his work at the Chris Sorensen Gallery in Fresno, CA and the Timberline Art Cooperative in Oakhurst, CA. His shift to the fabric arts was heavily influenced by his wife’s work with art quilts and together they wrote Secrets of Digital Quilting From Camera to Quilt. 
The book was released in February of 2010 by C&T Publishing. 
He is a member of Studio Art Quilt Associates and currently teaches digital fabric printing at major seminars such as Empty Spools Seminars at the Asilomar Conference Center in Pacific Grove.

Photo journaling is the process of recording images as the artist searches for new creative expressions. For many textile artists photography is a major reference source.  

Others use it to create exciting and colorful fabric to use in their next work of art. 

Explore the Italian countryside with photojournalist and artist, Kerby Smith, to sharpen your creative focus and build your library of valuable original images.

Whether you use a point-and-shoot camera or a more sophisticated digital camera with interchangeable lenses, learn the secrets of taking the best pictures with it. 

In this fun filled week you will take hundreds of pictures and find out how to quickly edit them for the most impact in your photo journal. 

Produce a photo journal of your adventure to Abruzzo and tap the secret of how to optimize those digital images for use later in blogs, books and fabric.
