Lukuise Swanigan: Vivid Images

Night Guardians,Handmade fabric cords, one canvas.


As a judge for Arts Alive, in Florence, AL. I was introduced to the work of Lukuise Swanigan. In person, her magnetic images made me drool. I was enthralled by the imagery, the skill, and, yes, the vivid color. Almost a year later, Garden Spices welcomes the award-winning fabric artwork of Lukuise Swanigan to illuminate our pages.

Artist Statement: Vivid Images

The influencing force behind my artwork is an enduring interest in people, the human spirit, its emotional past, present and how it manifests in our relationships with others over time.

Each piece I create is simultaneously an extension of the past. Where I’ve come from, and what I’ve learned. As well as a preview of the future, where I am yet to go.

My work is made to touch and be touched. If a viewer stops just for a moment to view and reflect on one of my creations, then I have succeeded in my craft.

Artist Bio

Born in Aberdeen and raised in Columbus, MS. Lukuise Swanigan is a self-taught artist inspired by nature and childhood memories. Before making the decision to become an artist, Lukuise attended Ashworth Community College for floral design, a craft that she continued even after graduating.

In 2009, she had a vision and found ways to create art using wrapped fabric. She honed her craft until deciding to start appearing at art shows in 2018.

Her process begins with a sketch. From there she transfers the image to her canvas and begins the process of wrapping printed cotton fabric in vibrant colors into art. The time it takes to complete a piece can take one week to four months, depending on the amount of detail.

Lukuise has dreams that one day her art will be used to commemorate a pivotal moment in history or even be shown in a museum.
