Colour, line, shape, size, direction, contrast are all clearly visible in this art quilt. The sea by day or night has always fascinated me and I wanted to capture both the sun and the moon. Texture is an important element in this work. I have used many different fabrics from rich velvet to smooth satin, hoping to capture the depth of the ocean and reflection of light. Detailed free motion quilting adds contrast and harmony.
My work was inspired by a small illustration of a work by the artist, Roy de Maistre 1919.
