Kandace Manning-Quilts, Water Color Paintings and Handmade Papers


Rocks and Water, water color by Manning 2010

Kandace Manning is a native Portlander grounded in gardening, animal husbandry sewing and the fabric arts. We met on her summer break from Cooper Union where I lived in her long-time family property nested in Forest Park, in 2009. Manning is obsessed with her work, whatever it might be, raising goats, sculpting gardens, drawing, quilting, paper-making, she is one of the most talented and productive artists I have met in years.
