Tunicates 3, Original Quilt by Andrée Fredette – Private Collection

 

Welcome.

Whether you call it fibre art, quilting, textile work… it doesn’t matter. For me, quilted textiles have a special appeal. They are very sensuous, a pleasure for the eye and for the hand. I like to play with a riot of colours, and it shows in my work. I hope you enjoy your visit.

My textile work is based on the great outdoors. Now that I live on the edge of the continent, I pay attention to the ebb and flow of the intertidal zone—the border between land and sea—where life is an endless struggle.

My Tunicates series of quilts is an interpretation of this tension, a story of border warfare between tiny tribes of creatures.
