Today I continue my search for textile artists that inspire. Today's artist comes from Canada, Elaine Quehl. She makes dramatic and colourful nature-themed art quilts featuring luscious foliage (particularly hosta leaves), flowers and trees. She dyes her own fabric, the result is vibrant quilts that transport you into a Garden of Eden. Check out her website to be inspired.
Yesterday I went to the Triple Stitch exhibition at Bolin Bolin Gallery at Bulleen Art & Garden, 6 Manningham Rd Bulleen to check out my friend Jacie Malseed's latest work. Jacie's focus is textiles and colour, I really like the direction she is taking her work, she is one talented lady. The exhibition is a collaboration of three friends, each working in their own style and technique so there is plenty of diversity to keep your interest as you view this exhibition in this light filled gallery. www.gallery.baag.com.au
