Wow, I am so honoured to be featured with two pieces and an interview!
Artists had been invited to enter 1 work per decade from which a selection would be made. The work on the left is Ancestral Shadows, 2002, first prize winner of the 2nd European Quilt Triennial Heidelberg, in a private collection. On the right Passages, 2014, now exhibited in the QA International exhibition Dialogues at Kirkcudbright Galleries Scotland. The development is remarkable.

This coffee table book is truly packed with amazing art quilts made by groundbreaking and innovative artists of the past 50 years. Read more in this review by
Pixeladies.
They predict:
Art Quilts Unfolding will become one of the defining books of the medium and the movement.
