In October, 2021, I began a new series of works using my old and unsuccessful quilts. I have quite a collection of these unusable quilts so am happy to recycle them into my love of artist books. By adding collage and paint yet letting the original quilt shine through, I can create something stable enough to hold up as a book. It’s been an exciting adventure!
Have just seen that my piece The Advantage of US was hanging in the Houston Quilt Festival in October 2021. I could only view it virtually but was happy to see it. Next year it will travel to California for the Quilt Festival in Long Beach.
I have a new quilt juried into a SAQA regional exhibition! It’s called On The Verge and was made in response to the group’s challenge “Edges”. I was even lucky enough to visit it in the New England Quilt Museum in Lowell, MA in January 2021 and later learned it had sold! Many thanks to my collector! Though it is very hard here in Europe at the moment, I will take this as a sign of good things to come. Hoping the best for us all in the new year.
And again my next chance at exhibiting (Nadelwelt in Friedrichshafen) will also be cancelled. This year has been a very crazy time. Time to reflect and pause. But also time to create new art. I have a few new quilts already in the making…. Here’s hoping 2021 will be a better year.
Unfortunately, because of the Coronavirus threat, our yearly meeting has been cancelled. But I will be sharing a booth at Nadelwelt in Friedrichshafen in November 2020. I will show my exhibition Kinship with a few new pieces. I will post more information as I get it.
Looking forward to showing my exhibition Kinship in Solothurn during our yearly meeting in March, 2020. It is open to the public and just for one day, but if you are in the neighborhood, please stop by!
And more exciting news! My installation Symbiosis II has been accepted into the SAQA exhibition 3D Expression. It will be touring for 2 years. The first venue is in Grand Rapids, Michigan in September, 2019. In February, 2020 it will travel to St. Bonaventure, New York, and then in June, 2020 to Delaware, Ohio. Very happy, as this is my first attempt to apply for a SAQA Global Exhibition.
Exciting news! I have a solo show at the Nordwolle Museum in Delmenhorst, Germany. The opening is on Sunday, 2. December, 2018 at 11. Looking forward to it! Here’s the flyer: Flyer_QuiltSonderausstellung18
I’ve just sent off two quilts! One to France for the European Patchwork Meeting in St. Marie aux Mine (the fourth time I am represented!) and one to Germany with a quilt for the German Afghani Initiative “Keep your eye on the planet” These two quilts will be shown in St. Marie-aux-mine in September 2018.
My Quilt Changeover has just returned home after travelling for over 2 years around the world. It’s nice to have it back again.
Just heard that our quilts (Trip to the End of the World) will be presented in Farfield Mill, UK from 9 January to 4. March, 2018. More info here: http://www.farfieldmill.org/ It’s nice to know where they travel!
My Quilt Wisdom has won first prize at the Art Quilt Award 2017! I’m so thrilled!!
My quilt Convergence was accepted to the European Patchwork Meeting in St. Marie-aux-Mine, France. The first exhibition is in September, 2017 and will travel for a year to various locations.
