Pauline Burbidge

Take one person, who at the age of twenty five, was moved when viewing an exhibition of antique quilts, and mix it with her art school practice of drawing, colour, line and abstraction. Stir in a passion for cloth, stitching and making, together with a love of the rural landscape, the natural world and the spirituality of a special place, and you begin to get a picture of my textile artwork now. Many influences have come and gone, however, thirty five years on, quiltmaking still moves me!!

I make unique, special, ‘one-off’ individual quilts – creating my own visual language in fabric. My work has been exhibited worldwide and purchased by the major museums of the U.K. and major U.S.A. collections.

In recent years my quilt work has divided into two main categories – ‘STUDIO QUILTS’, fabric collages, made deliberately as very special wall hangings, and ‘Quiltline’ quilts, designed and made for practical and functional use.
