Walk the walk – images to make your day, International Quilt Festival 2015.

t’s not easy photographing the quilts, I had limited time, and sometimes the quilts are placed on an angle so its difficult to place them square in the viewfinder. We all have to take our turn and you wait patiently for the persons in front of you to capture their images.

Then snap… so some of the images are a little crooked at times.

Some of the winners – International Quilt Festival Houston.

These are just a few of the winning quilts at the International Quilt Festival in Houston. I will add more as when I get to take the photos over the next few days.

I like to look at the quilts in detail, I study them depth, each and every one.

The Day diary of a Textile Art Tutor. – Capture and Create.

It’s so nice being home. I have another day of teaching today with a group of ladies who honour me with their presence. I’m always humbled and I still have the feeling of amazement that someone actually waits in anticipation, prepares and packs their supplies to come to one of my classes. When those ladies arrive laden with their machines and large overflowing bags of fabric, notions and the latest equipment I do a little mental dance.

Street art. – A fascinating form of communication.

Artists have challenged art by situating it in non-art contexts. Street artists do not aspire to change the definition of an artwork, but rather to question the existing environment with its own language. The motivations and objectives that drive street artists are as varied as the artists themselves.
