“ Collecting is of course for most collectors just a reasonably absorbing and largely harmless pastime, looked upon by an uncomprehending world as a kind of Gentle Madness”  Stephen Calloway

My love of natural fibres inspired me to collect silk clothing, linen tea towels cotton doyleys and place mats.  I look for material that has an interesting image or pattern on it. I cut, rip, glue, stitch, print or add paint to create a new image.

This show is a selection of mixed medium work created over a three year period longer if you include the work of the original quilts I have sewn over.

There  are six large hanging quilts  one of them double sided, and several small framed works  which make a number of series linked by process or theme.  There is nothing deep or meaningful about my work, I simply try to create  unique images that can’t be reproduced. This is the beauty of working with  collected items I call gems from the op shops or given to me by friends.

Some of the images are loosely pictorial and some are abstract.  The abstract ones are suggestive of landscape or birds. The pictorial ones tell a story or create an imaginary scene through collage.

They are the fruits of my gentle madness.
