K. Velis Turan (b. Washington, D.C.) is a mixed media fiber artist  living and working in the Hudson Valley region of New York.  Her artwork has been exhibited nationally and internationally.  Her focus, whether realistic or abstract, is always intensely graphic.

She employs surface-design techniques which include silk screen printing, fabric painting, photo transfer and embellishing with quilting, hand stitching and beading on the whole-cloth surface of her work.  She enjoys the “zen” of free-motion quilting – adding her signature “thread stokes” which become the life of each piece.

Her artwork has been exhibited nationally and internationally.
