Paula Nadelstern

Paula Nadelstern has achieved international recognition for her innovative and complex designs inspired by the bilateral symmetry of kaleidoscopic images, including the American Folk Art Museum's first one person exhibition highlighting the work of a contemporary quilt artist (2009). Honored by inclusion in the Twentieth Century's 100 Best American Quilts, her designs have inspired industrial products including the vast carpet in the Hilton Americas hotel in Houston, TX.

Paula is the author of Paula Nadelstern's Kaleidoscope Quilts: An Artist's Journey Continues, Kaleidoscope Quilts: The Workbook, Puzzle Quilts: Simple Blocks, Complex Fabric, Kaleidoscopes & Quilts and Snowflakes & Quilts. She was a recipient of fellowships from the New York Foundation for the Arts in 1995 and 2001.

Paula lives in New York City, designs textile prints exclusively for Benartex, Inc. and travels extensively teaching her unique kaleidoscopic quiltmaking techniques.
