Elizabeth Greene, a professional quilter, and musician began her career almost 30 years ago in the Philadelphia and New Jersey area where she grew up. After graduating from Boston University School of Fine and Applied Arts, with a degree in music education, Liz turned her attention to clothing and quilt design. In 2007 two of her quilts were accepted and shown at the Quilting Heritage Show in Lancaster, Pa.

In 2019 her quilt work was displayed at the West End Museum in Atlanta, Ga. and the Historical Courthouse in Lawrenceville, Ga. After moving in 2021 to Fernandina Beach, Florida , she joined the Amelia Island Quilt Guild, where she has served in the Community Outreach group as well as co-Vice president and coordinator for the Friday Quilting workshops. Most recently, Liz, as a member of the Amelia Island Quilt Guild won a 3rd prize ribbon for an “Eight Flags “challenge quilt. The quilt was inspired by the history of the Spanish influence on Amelia Island. It served to represent the life of Anna Kingsley a princess, slave and landowner during the 1700’s. Having the 20x 23-inch quilt displayed at the Amelia Island Museum of History was both an honor and a pleasure. More recently her quilts and handmade bags were on display at the Shady Ladies Art Studio in Fernandina Beach. I look forward to being an active participant as an exhibiting artist of the Island Art Association.

My goal as a visual artist is to educate, inspire and share with others the raw passion and energy displayed in my quilting designs. In doing so I preserve history and tell stories through global textiles that evoke joy through the tactile art form of quilting.
