She recounted that when she broke a sewing machine needle on her mother’s crank sewing machine her mother was mortified as that was the needle that had been in the machine forever. When Hilary lived in BC she discovered quilting and moved into the world of making art quilts. As a textile artist she is self-taught and is willing to share her skills and techniques by teaching workshops and through her patterns and kits.
It is interesting to read on her website (http://www.mestudios.ca ) that she was able to connect her art and her music. She writes: “It is also interesting when many people view my work; they see influence from my music – saying it virtually sings! In a mysterious and profound way, my music and my art are deeply connected.”
Here are a few photos of Hilary’s creations:
