Kathleen is inspired by nature. Trying to create movement in her pieces motivates her to experiment with different techniques, mediums, and embellishments. The splendour of autumn or large scale floral is often showcased in her work.
Kathleen has worked in various mediums for 30 plus years. Quilts have been in her family for generations with many treasured antiques created by her great-grand-mother so it was natural for her to take up quilting over twenty-five years ago. After exploring traditional quilt patterns for many years, she learned how to dye fabrics in a twelve step colour wheel which offered a glimpse into the possibility of creating art quilts. Kathleen began developing her own designs using her own photographs and paintings for Art Quilts (as wall hangings), table runners, journal covers, etc.
