Ann Keister was a local Grand Rapids artist and faculty at GVSU. She found inspiration from her travels for her textile and mixed media works of art. Keister was best known for her quilts, tapestries and fabric-based art that is now in collections around the world.
"I use travel, museum study and my design library as resources for my work. When I travel, I photograph anything that interests me: art, architectural details, shop windows, food. I have had many opportunities in the past several years to visit and photograph museums in many parts of Europe. I also pay attention to the beauty and danger around me. I am interested in my own home, neighborhood and garden, climate change and war." – Ann Keister
