About Luisa Elena: Having majored in Art History while studying at Wellesley College, Luisa spent a semester in Florence, studying the Italian Masters of the Renaissance and Baroque periods. While working at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, her team launched a program that allowed blind people to enjoy art, by using alternative senses. Later, through my work with new immigrants at the Red Cross, she saw the power of teaching as another way to connect with people, eventually leading her to pursue a graduate degree in Education at Harvard.
About Louise Botero: She was reunited with her two aunts in Concord, and they taught Louise to quilt. In three years’ time she was asked to start a quilting class (teaching “Quilting American Style”) at Harvard Neighbors, where she taught for 18 years. Her students made quilts for hospitals, veterans, and for women in rehab. Louise is currently working on her 157th quilt!
