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 quilting work was in art quilts using fusible applique and confetti. In 2013 she collaborated with a Spanish artist  to create some beautiful painted pieces especially with rescued endangered animals.  She is currently painting her  own art and collaborating with other artists .
