Consuo, Consuere, Consui

A celebration of my 20 years as a quilter. Several thousand separate pieces of photos on fabric and both my hand-dyed and commerical fabrics combine to tell the stories of quilting, researching, designing, devising, teaching, travelling and making new friends.

Arnabet

I used a design favoured by the Romans to explore textures. Hares played in the fields outside my home while I made this, so they are there too.
62” x 41” £400

Caracalla

A collage of silk papers that I made in a variety of textures. Inspired by the Baths of Caracalla in Rome
30” x 24” SOLD

Mosaic at Sunset

Gold and purple light floods the mosaic floor of the Roman slave market in Dougga, Tunisia. The Emperor's purple, the gold that bought the slaves. The sun has set on that empire and now lizards live there - free.
42” x 43½” £450

Opus Sectile II

A collage of designs based on the 700 year old Great Pavement in Westminster Abbey, London. Colours were matched to those chosen by the original Cosmati ( a type of mosaic) artists. My first experiment with paper foundation piecing.

Piscator

My interpretation of a fragment of Roman mosaic in silks and cotoons, mostly hand-dyed.
