Anne Smithies

Colour inspired & created to cheer the soul.
Textiles: quilts, silks & hangings. Fused Glass: Functional & decorative. Mixed Media: paper, paint & fibre.

I get a buzz out of working with colour & tactile materials while creating 3-dimensional art that is functional or for the challenge of seeing if I can do it.

After 25+ years of self discovery, developing knowledge & working practice, curating & owning a gallery, my work is refining whilst stretching into new possibilities.

I often mix my media or take an idea/colour/image across mediums to see how it will transpose. Art includes examples of fabric & fibres, free form machine quilting & embroidery, wirework & glass & sample experimentation work. I enjoy introducing others into the ‘how-tos’, stirring creative desire & opening doors because being creative is so beneficial.

Currently I am working on a conceptual art piece exploring ‘kaleidoscope worlds’.
