I have been always interested in everything about drawing and painting. Gradually, I have broadened out my interest in textile and different methods used in working with textile.
This specific interest of mine lead to making art quilts. There I can use both my hobbies – working with colours and composition – and sewing fabrics. Eight years ago I started to piece and sew small squares, nowadays I love sewing pictures while using mixed media techniques. I also like teaching, specially new techniques.
I am a member of SAQA, Bohemia Patchwork Club, Art Quilt Club CZ and recently of a new group Art Quilt Harbour. This new group started working on common project of the same theme but designed differently by individual group members.
