 Denise A. Currier of Currier Originals is an award winning artist with over 40 years of art experience and 39 years of professional sales in multiple art mediums. She has lived in Mesa, Arizona for over 32 years and currently her art studio views the city. Sewing at a young age brought creative exploration back to the basics of fiber along with the interested knowledge of multiple art mediums. The graphic journey from design drawings of clothing ads, commercial window displays, and the articulate approach of painting, surface design and photographic original image printing onto fiber, cultivated the forgiving dimension of the Art Quilt. These ‘Ah hah’ artistic moments interpreted fiber art quilts as her chosen art medium. An art collector enthusiast herself, she reflects these experiences into her energetic creative stream.

 Denise has exhibited in the Art Quilts Exhibit at the Chandler Center of the Arts, Arizona for over 16 years. Current exhibitions include Tohono Chul Park Museum, Tucson, i.d.e.a.
