Maria Ferri Cousins
Since her childhood Maria has been busy with sewing, needlepoint and embroidery. She won her first blue ribbon in a local Needle Work Competition on Long Island, NY in 1975 and started quilting in 1998. Most of her work was in art quilts using fusible applique and confetti. In 2013 she collaborated with a Spanish artist to create some beautiful pieces especially with rescued endangered animals. She is currently painting her own art and collaborating with other artists .
