Voyage – A group of textiles artists drawn together from around the world who vary in both their experience and in the nature of expression of their art. Their work broadly encompasses the understanding of a quilt in its loosest form. We exist as a virtual group on the internet, posting our work on the blog and communicating via a group site to enable us to share our work and exhibit.
We move forward from two successful exhibitions in 2016 in Prague and in the USA to the challenge of an exhibition in the Netherlands in the Autumn. We continue to work on A2 sized pieces in portrait format and will be producing four pieces over the year with the theme of 'Freedom'. An essential part of our art is working in series to a common format which does give us all a framework for our creative endeavours.

Done and Done!
And 2014 finally is in the books.
Here are my 6 pieces. I just waited until they were all completed because a few of them were down to the wire....well....past the wire.
For the theme EARTH, I chose to do a series of beautiful places made by nature. Hence the series title --
WONDERS OF NATURE
Great Barrier Reef
"GIANTS IN THE MIST"
Sequoia National Forest
"UNDER AFRICAN SKIES"
Avenue of the Baobobs
These were all so very fun to do. Now looking forward to exhibiting in Duluth all of the beautiful works of art made by each of you!!
And on to 2015 -- already have my inspiration pieces. The series will be titled: Forces of Nature. I will be doing a hurricane, lava flow, lightening and an iceberg. Anxious to get started!!
