Heather works with fabric to create art quilts of landscapes and flowers much as a painter uses paint. Her art quilts use layers of fabric to give a realistic portrayal of nature in non-traditional quilting. With each project she tries new techniques to make each unique.
"On retirement, I began my quilting journey. I started with traditional quilting and after a workshop my interest was sparked into creating art quilts. I have been honoured by my peers in the Georgian Bay Quilting Guild at their biannual Quilt Show with a second in the Guild Challenge. The next show I was honoured with the Viewers’ choice first place award.
Before quilting became a passion I was a spinner, natural wool dyer and weaver. I have always enjoyed creating original pieces."
