Elsie Dentes is a fabric artist from Ithaca NY and a member of the "Quilt Divas" (thequiltdivas.com)- an association of quilt & fabric artists from the Fingerlakes region of Upstate New York.
The Quilt Divas created an art quilt to benefit the "Dining for Women" charity (diningforwomen.org) - an organization of women helping women that donates funds to charities that empower women & girls throughout the developing world.
Elsie created a panel inspired by the "One-Acre Fund" (oneacrefund.org), which seeks to help East African farmers grow their own way out of hunger.
During this interview Elsie discusses why she chose the "The One Acre Fund" as her inspiration, and how she used brochures and her own imagination to create a lush impressionist image of women farming the earth.
