Meet Our Brand Ambassador


Kena Tangi Dorsey (Quilt Artist, Teacher, Designer, and Owner of Kena Quilt Studio), began quilting over 20 years ago while living in Harlem, NYC. Her artistic style is a blend of contemporary, modern improv and traditional quilt making. However, it’s making portrait art quilts that really makes her heart sing! Her favorite textiles to work with are Indonesian Batiks and African wax print fabrics. Last year, Kena bought a Grace Qnique 19 and moved from domestic machine quilting to longarm and loves it! She teaches both in- person and live virtual quilting workshops and lectures. Over the last year, Kena has had some of her art quilts and African fabric quilts featured in festivals as well as published in the Spring, Summer and Winter 2023 issues of Art Quilting Studio Magazine and Today’s Quilter Magazine. When not making quilts, she teaches filmmaking and television production to high school students, and is also an adjunct professor at a local college.
