Be Still is my first fabric wall hanging that I explored using pastels with fabric. The soft image and spiritual theme makes me feel so much peace everytime I see her.
At the time of creation, it felt like everything that could go wrong did. It was a time when no matter how much I tried, it still wasn't getting me the results I wanted. So, it's time to Be Still. Just wait until your mind can be still and you hear what to do next is such a valuable way to go and this piece poured out of me in love.

This quilt displays women in African dress playing their flutes in unison. In my imagination I wanted to convey a feeling of unity and oneness at the same time. Each distinct woman can play the flute, but as a collective their harmony can be amazing.

When I began this piece I had in mind greens and blues that would remind me of nature and the circle of life. Each season like a dream of being in place in time when you find solitude and happiness. The dramatic changes in color last only a short time. Each frame has a wonderful story to tell and will possibly remind you of a time when the seasons gave you wonder and enjoyment.

This piece was inspired by those ladies I listen to on the radio when I was young, and would stand in front of my mirror with the brush as a microphone. On stage they have the audience in the palm of their hands wiht their spirit shining through as they sing. "Divas"has this magical appeal about the whole composition. It is very classy and stylish but also with the gold and subtle red in the border makes this piece really stand out!

In understanding God for myself, I never really thought God was some big gray haired white guy with lightening coming from his hands. God has always been loving like my mom and caring like my aunts. So when I talk to God, I imagine God being everything I see in people. All different shades of hair and all different shades of brown, and skin like mine. In my journey, I often think "What if God Were a Black Woman."

Jazz music has such a distinct way about it. The music is often mellow in sound but also the blend of instruments makes you want to tap your feet and clap your hands. I wanted to convey the feeling of being in the audience as the band plays those great sounds

This is a movie quilt that I created when it was a trying time, feeling like the weight of the world was on my shoulders and it was hard to move. But slowly, as the situation changes, your on top of your problems and feel that you learned more than you thought you would from what was going on.

I was inspired to make this piece by thinking of all the being so busy that you go through life not really noticing people or those that have a sign asking for help or food. What if we walked past God, would we still be too busy to notice? If he needed help or food?

We've all seen her. That one lady that stands out in a crowd with the smile that will light up the whole room. She has confidence and you can see it a mile away. Actually, everyone will stop and stare. That's what inspired this wall hanging.

When you wear a Katrina Gorman Designs original or have a framed fabric art piece in your home, office or favorite surrounding, you will be able to feel the care and love that goes into each piece.
