In Their Shoes
Most of the quilts in this gallery are new pieces made in 2016 / 2017, although there are a few pieces which are somewhat older. The quilts are mostly concerned with issues of social conscience - put more simply, problems and injustices in our society.
I have chosen themes which tell stories of our time; they are things we see and hear, day in and day out, on the TV or in our Facebook feed. Often they are things which shock or annoy us for the ten or so seconds they are shown, but then are just as quickly forgotten as 'life goes on'.
I have deliberately chosen not to put a positive or negative spin on the stories, rather portraying things as they are,
leaving the viewer to reflect upon the content and to perhaps promote conversation. Several of the quilts are currently on tour.
