It is a great privilege to have been included as a ‘featured artist’ in Martha Sielman’s  Art Quilts International book:  Abstract & Geometric that was released on 28 December 2016.

Once Martha selected my work from images back in 2014 we did an email interview about my work and studio practice and have communicated regularly since to update any information that was relevant until the book went to print late last year.

It is a really informative book about the international art quilt genre with interesting interviews with the artists, high quality photographic images of their artwork and a well considered layout so you can see the images clearly which makes it a great reference book.

Available on Amazon:  Abstract & Geometric by Martha Sielman
