As the world warms up, more and more lands are suffering devastating floods. We have seen many in recent years and that has been my inspiration.
Cape Horn is the southernmost headland of the Tierra del Fuego archipelago and it is the point where the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans collide. The waters around the Cape are particularly dangerous and many lives and ships have been lost there. With my quilt I try to express the movement and feeling of chaos and unpredictability of those waters.
The land in Britain has been parcelled up since the land seizure after the Norman conquest, when it was taken by force. Today's landscape would be very different if this had not happened. And, these parcels of land, with their hedges and walls, produce a beautiful patchwork effect when seen from above.
