Midweek meander.

Here are some images of work from a few of the many textile artists  that I admire, I hope you enjoy them as much as I do. I have followed the work of  these artists for many years and watched their practices evolve and grow into the wonderful work that they are making today. Feast your eyes!

Why quilts? The question for me could as well be
'Why breathe?'........ Improvising during the painting,
image-transfer processes and collaging of materials,
while chasing an idea at hand creates adventure
in the studio - Thought are made visible.
