Fussell was born and raised in Columbus, GA., an old textile town. Hailing from multiple generations of seamstresses and quilters, she was taught to sew by her mother and now produces boundary-pushing quilt works with discarded and donated textiles as her sole materials, according to Fussell’s official website.

Fussell is a 2021 Museum of Arts and Design Burke Prize Finalist, the Jane Crater Hiatt Fellow and winner of the 2021 Mississippi Museum of Art Biennial, a 2019 United States Artists Fellow in Craft, the 2019 Mississippi Institute of Arts and Letters Visual Arts Inductee, and the Finalist for the 2017 SouthArts Southern Prize.
