Introduction I am an award winning artist mainly working in textiles and mixed media, whose work has been exhibited both nationally and internationally,and has won many prizes including winning the Scottish Quilt Championship in 1998, the European Quilt Championship in 2006 and the British Quilt and Stitch Village in 2015. My work has also won prizes for hand workmanship, computer design, art quilting and embellishment. I entered the world of mixed media around 2004 and my Artist Trading Card (ATC) Enduring, Unending won Best of Show in the House of Cards exhibition, Columbus, Ohio, 2005. I love art journalling and at the moment I'm an monthly Guest Designer for Stencilgirl Products. My art has been published in a wide variety of magazines and books both here in the U.K. and abroad.I love photography and have uploaded a daily picture to the Blipfoto site for the last 6.5 years. In 2012 I completed my self set task of making one Journal Quilt every week in the 52 Journals Project and they were exhibited in a very successful show in Peebles in 2014. I'm a full-time studio artist.
Interests My work is also my hobby. I love everything to do with fabrics, beads etc. and am getting more and more enthousiastic about mixed media art as well. Art is my life and my life is my art! I'm a budding photographer and upload one picture every day to the Blipfoto site (http://www.blipfoto.com/friedaquilter)
