Aurifil Artisans, Morocco Textile Piece.

In 12 hours I’m leaving Australia for Morocco. It’s a place I’ve been to before and this time I will be teaching Textile Art and Photography as Artist in Residence. I wanted a project for the guests to do as we travel so I decided to create an image of Marrakech as I see it,…

Creating a design board.

This is a small drawing I created in Adobe Draw on the iPad Pro as we traveled in the bus yesterday. It’s Naive to say the least, but it’s what I saw in a pure sort of way. Components in the image could be used as stand alone patterns for fabric. The stripes, the trees…

A little more of the Quilts from the Houston Quilt Festival.

I flew directly to India after Houston and I still had a lot of images to share but I just rolled into the image of India. So here they are, I’m not sure what category these were in. I think it was colour. Nevertheless, they are gorgeous.

Quilts from the International Quilt Festival.

  I have so many quilts to share with you and so little time before we begin our next adventure. It’s so interesting going to Houston and walking around the quilt exhibition. Have you walked the aisles and seen a new technique and suddenly thought well why didn’t I think of that? Then on the…
