Me, featured in local magazine

Very pleased to have been featured in this month’s edition of All About Horsham magazine. His piece about me has given me some insight into my own work!

I feel like my artwork is at a turning point, but I still don’t know in which direction to go next with it.

I will be thinking over the summer where I am going next with my art. I suspect more towards painting and less of the patchwork and quilting, but you never know…..

Life beginning to start again!

Having been locked down since mid December, I’m delighted to be back in this lovely gallery, with some new work.

Pastel Squares

Here is my latest work, a wall hanging, bed throw, or table runner, using concentric squares design in pastel colours. I’ve made a set of matching table mats to go with it. Enjoyed showing it at Gallery BN5, Henfield, Sussex, and now it is for sale in my Etsy shop.

“Tiger, Tiger”

This is my latest quilt, a long thin one, which I have called “Tiger, Tiger”, as its inspiration was the poem by William Blake called that, which I saw recently at the Tate Gallery. It could be used as a table runner, a foot of the bed throw, or hung as a wall hanging in, say, a passage. I have made four matching tablemats too.

This was the first time I have used curved peicing throughout a quilt, and I wanted to celebrate this small triumph with a old friend of mine, also a quilter. But sadly she died of Coronavirus a few weeks ago. Same age as me and in apparent good health, so this was shocking news. I miss her. So now every time I see this quilt, I think of her, and the quilting knowhow we shared, and it now has a quite different meaning for me than it was meant to have when I started it in January!
