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.

VOYAGE ART TEXTILES
I have a lush tropical garden with banana, guava and avocado trees and a large variety of plants. Many are of South American origin with exotic leaf and flower shapes. I particularly love the huge Monstera Deliciosa leaves.They inspired me to create a polyptych that conveys the large size of the leaf. Each quilt is made individually using black, white and primary coloured fabrics. I used fused applique, free motion machine embroidery and quilting using rayon threads. Each piece was highlighted with acrylic paint.
