Kaylene Maalste – Country – Artist
The inspiration for my artist is a contemporary artist – Marian Quigley she is noted for her “hard edge” painting. Hard edge painting is an approach to abstract painting and is characterized by areas of flat colour with sharp, clear (or ‘hard’) edges.
I chose to design a beach scene and used blue printed fabrics for the sea, white fabric with cheese cloth for the waves and a sandy print colour for the beach. The sky is textured blue fabric. To make the design different I added three orange umbrellas. The quilt is hand quilted and bound with an off white texture fabric.
