Artist Feature: Anh Nguyen, The Creative Quill

The art of quilling dates back to the 1300s when the quill of a bird feather was used to wrap strips of paper into floral shapes. Anh Nguyen of The Creative Quill is a self taught quill artist. She creates a multitude of images using the same techniques. The smallest strips of paper are rolled tightly and then shaped by hand before being glued to high quality card stock to form various nature images.

We have designs ranging from exotic animals, a wide variety of flowers, birds, and special occasions. We also have Minnesota themed cards in sports teams, loons, the Ladyslipper, and Minnesota love.

We recommend writing your sentiment on the inside of the card and including a frame so that the card can go from a card to unique piece of art. Anh’s cards have a great following at Minnesota Makers and you will see why when you see her work. Stop in and stock up!
