About the Artist

by quilts_cp05my

Posey Krakowsky is an artist, theologian, and writer. A lifelong fiber artist, Posey’s specialty is quilting, but she also knits, weaves, paints, sews, and works with beads. Her quilting pieces are multi-layered and rich. Each one takes many months to complete.

An Episcopal priest in the Diocese of New York, Posey currently serves as a priest associate at the Church of the Ascension in Greenwich Village. An M Div graduate of Union Theological Seminary, she also earned an STM from General Seminary. Krakowsky has been blending her love of the arts and religion her entire life. She earned her bachelor’s degree in early Christian studies from Harvard University, then went on to work in the world of fashion in New York for nine years before her two children were born. She later taught at the Ethical Culture Fieldston School in the Bronx, NY before starting seminary. For several years, Posey was a guest lecturer at Union Theological Seminary, where she co-taught Art & Interfaith Dialogue, a course that took place at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. She is also the founder of The Contemplative Gaze — a teaching ministry that offers resources for personal and group spiritual growth using a contemplative method of viewing art as the catalyst for engagement.
