My name is maggie winnall. I am a contemporary textile artist and I make colourful abstract art using cloth, texture and line. My art is a combination of traditional quilting values with contemporary vision. I use recycled cloth. I employ sewing and quilting tools and techniques to help me process my ideas. I love the process of recreating cloth and colour into new configurations and love using my sewing machine.
Finding my way round
Welcome to my world of textile art…..should read welcome to my world of textile art if I only knew how to blog!
I guess it is a matter of just trying things out and seeing what happens. So I am currently typing my script in the visual display box because I like to be able to see everything I have written.
The picture I posted is a detail shot of my entry to the Art Quilt category in the Festival of Quilts 2009. It is called no9 red shoes, has mixed fibres and made from a wide variety of re-cycled/up-cycled cloth.
I have still to learn how to present the image the right way up.I guess this is how it will be learn as you go!
welcome to my world of textile art, colour cloth and stitch.
