Our best wishes for a year of creativity and fun!
Alison had surgery last December, but she’s feeling inspired again.
Her SAQA quilt shown below—a contribution to the SAQA auction—usually marks the inspirational basis for Alison’s creative Series, and this year’s little piece is no exception: she already feels it fits in with the Timetracks series, which you can see by visiting her gallery at http://www.alisonschwabe.com/gallery.php?cat=2
Alison is an Australian artist with extensive professional experience as a textile creator and teacher. She presently lives and works in Uruguay.
Her blog offers fascinating descriptions of her artistic process in developing each piece, or each series of pieces. For example, in her recent work, “Beachwork” she describes the mental process required to initiate work with purchased material she had previously deemed unsuitable.
Unlike artists who prefer to work secretly until their work is ready for showing and viewing, Alison shares her mental and creative state with her public, thus allowing a better understanding of her creation.
