Patchwork and Quilting.

I am a Quilt artist

The art I exhibit is usually produced by painting, printing, piecing and quilting textiles. My work as a textile artist has gained me recognition and awards. Some of this work can be seen on my Portfolio page. As a Quilt artist, I take inspiration from many sources, including the natural world, politics, news and history.

My exhibition of Textile Art -‘Textiles in Transition’

My next solo exhibition will run from 27 March to 21 April 2017 in Y Senedd – The Assembly Building, Cardiff CF10 4PZ. My original sponsor was Alun Ffred Jones AM, following his visit to my 2015 exhibition at Oriel Ynys Mon, Anglesey. After his retirement from the Welsh Assembly, Rhun ap Iorwerth, the AM for Anglesey, became my sponsor. I am very grateful to them both.

The exhibition is open to the public, so I hope lots of people will visit Y Senedd and see my work. The exhibition will include the four textile pieces below; a series of hangings based on studies of a wooded landscape:-
