We want to introduce you to one of our newest artist, George Mendoza. Mendoza is a painter, author, speaker and athlete. We have taken George's beautiful paintings and turned them in to a vibrant fabric collection. George is very unique in the fact that he has created these amazing paintings (along with many other accomplishments) while being blind. His line is through Art of Possibility which exclusively represents physically disabled artists via license to manufacturers interested in connecting with consumers on a meaningful level and with cause-oriented programs at retail. Below are pictures from Monday which was George Mendoza Day in Las Cruces, NM and the Governor of New Mexico as well as other dignitaries took part in the event. They showed his fabric line and recognized the abundance of Mendoza's achievements.
Keep your eye out for this unique collection that FreeSpirit will be debuting at quilt market in just a few weeks!
