Kathleen is inspired by nature. Trying to create movement in her pieces motivates Kathleen to experiment with different techniques and mediums. The splendour of autumn or large scale floral is often showcased in her work.
Quilts have been in her family for generations with many treasured antiques created by her great-grand-mother so it was natural for Kathleen to take up quilting over twenty-five years ago. After exploring traditional quilt patterns, she learned how to dye fabrics in a twelve step colour wheel which offered a glimpse into new possibilities by creating art quilts. Kathleen began making her own designs using her photographs and paintings for Art Quilts, table runners and lap quilts from her hand dyed or hand painted fabrics and batiks. Due to her creative energies, she never runs out of ideas and expresses them through different mediums.
