Nelson Salsa is a modern quilter and self-taught graphic artist who favors bright bold colors and designs. He has been quilting for three years and finds beauty and comfort in simple designs. “I try to use simple shapes in different or unexpected ways,” he said. “Depending on the colors you choose, the design can convey a different emotion or story.” He is a member of Quilt Design a Day, a Facebook group that inspired him to create and share his designs with other members. He lives in New York City with his partner and their cat.
