OH HAPPY DAY!
BY KEIKO GOKE

about the artist

For over 40 years, Japanese quilt artist Keiko Goke has created spectacular contemporary art quilts. A self taught quilter, Goke has “enjoyed my relationship with patchwork and quilting because fabrics are like paints to me, and designing patchwork makes me feel like I am painting my own picture.” Goke’s exceptional use of color comes naturally to her, making each of her pieces colorfully unique.
