Lynn Koolish


Lynn Koolish is a fiber artist, teacher, and author. She is most known for her bright colors of hand-dyed fabric and mixed-media fiber art. Based in Berkeley, CA, Lynn teaches online, throughout California, and nationally at venues including International Quilt Festival in Houston; Quilters Affair in Sisters, Oregon; and Road to California. 

In her current work, Lynn uses her hand-painted and hand-dyed fabrics to create improvisationally designed and pieced art quilts. In her work and her teaching, she always maintains a strong focus on applying basic design principles while maintaining the spontaneity of the improv process.

Lynn was an editor at C&T Publishing for almost 20 years, working on books ranging from art quilting, inkjet printing on fabric to traditional piecing, appliqué, embroidery, and more. She has written/co-written 5 books including Fast, Fun & Easy Fabric DyeingThe Wonderful Colorful Wonder Wheel of Color (with Kerry Graham and Mary Wruck), Innovative Fabric Imagery for Quilts (with Cyndy Rymer), and More Photo Fun (with the Hewlett-Packard Company and Cyndy Rymer).
