And the next artist is .....

I'm not long back home from my week away with the NW Contemporary Quilt group which was as inspiring and informative as you could imagine.

I haven't had time to catch up on all the recent posts but I was excited to see that it's my turn to choose the next artist.

I've enjoyed meeting new artists, particularly those that have been chosen for their shared nationality and thought that I would do likewise. But I wanted to add another element - here we all are, twelve women working away at our art but so far the chosen artists have been men. I'm far from being a rampant feminist but thought that it was time for a change so I give you .....


Wilhelmina Barnes-Graham worked in a variety of styles during her life so I'm hoping there will be something for everyone. Enjoy!

  1. She looks interesting and I'm looking forward to this one. I might even have difficulty choosing, as There are a lot that appeal to me at first glance.

  2. Great to have a woman artist and one who was so proficient in so many styles - surely something for everybody? Thanks Linda, another new artist introduced. This should be fun - and a challenge.

  4. Wow - what a woman! And I, too, had never heard of her. I had planned to take a female artist, too, when it's my turn, and I still will. Glad I didn't have to be the first.
