‘A Journey in Colour’
17th June – 17th July 2017
A quilter and textile artist from the North East, Anne’s work displays expert knowledge of colour, texture, tone and fine needlework. A master of both traditional and new techniques, Anne drew inspiration from the world around her and loved to generate new ideas.
Anne’s early work explored the use of colour using traditional quilting techniques. In these explorations, she developed expertise in Mola, a Central American technique, which she combined with quilting and fabric dyeing, creating her unique signature style.
During her life she contributed as an artist and teacher, nurturing talent in the region and in her later years qualifying as a quilt judge. She was a founder member of the Quilters Guild and of Contemporary Quilt.
Her family have helped set up an annual prize in her memory for newcomers to Contemporary Quilting.
This unique exhibition brings together the best of a life’s work and is in honour of Anne whose dedication to the study and exploration of textiles & colour leaves us a legacy of beautiful and inspiring textile art.
