I am originally from New Zealand where I learnt P and Q as a child. I have lived in the UK for over forty years and now live in Penzance, Cornwall which is only 12 miles from Lands End and the end of the country, so I feel I have emigrated again. It is a very artistic area down here although I have yet to find anyone who does art quilts. There are a number of textile artists, however. I am a member of the Contemporary Quilt group of the Quilters Guild of the British Isles but I don't belong to any quilting groups because the local ones are all very traditional. These days I only do quilt art and the occasional cot qult. I like to work small and have taken part in all the Journal Quilt projects that Contemporary Quilt has run.
