Martha Buhl


Nike Cutsumpas

Nike's art is her creative expression of nature with all the inspiration that nature gives her every day. 


Demonstrating nature in its many forms through a fantasy perspective allows her boundless diversity in creativity.  Creating art with color and fiber is compelling. 


Nike makes her art to satisfy herself and hopes that it will please the viewer as a visual feast of color, shape and texture, style and technique.


Jane Davila

Jane is a fiber and mixed media artist who incorporates many printmaking techniques into her work. She teaches printmaking, surface design, art quilting, and art business workshops extensively worldwide.

Repeating motifs of fish, birds, and insects reflect her ongoing fascination with nature, the environment, and human impact.


Tamar Drucker

Tamar has always loved to dream and create art work, so she is drawn to cutting and collaging fabrics, and then quilting. Her inspirations come from books, classical music, traveling, and taking photographs.

Cindy D

Cindy Drake

Cindy has always loved sewing and working with fabric. She hadn't tried quilting until she met and became fast friends with Claire Oehler. Cindy made some baby quilts, pieced quilts, some 70's wall hangings, and 2 squares for the Somers Town Quilt that hangs in the Elephant Hotel.


Cindy later took courses in interior design at Parsons and worked in that field for the next 20 years. I also enjoy gardening, Botanical drawing, and jewelry making.

Cindy is in awe of the talents, creativity, and skills of the members of FANE and is looking forward to quilting again. She loves the idea of smaller works and is inspired to learn some of these interesting new techniques.


Judy Gignesi

Since she got her first Singer sewing machine in 1957, Judy has been sewing; she started quilting in the 1980s, making traditional bed quilts, but over the years has become more involved with mixed media and art quilts.

She loves learning new techniques and exploring new creative possibilities as her work continues to evolve.
