Bridget O’Flaherty, also known as The Sustainable Quilter, is inspired by nature. She is passionate about our environment and feels an intimate connection to the landscape and wildlife of Canada. Bridget has worked in textile arts for over 25 years and is drawn to fibre for the tactile nature and connection it has to the land. She is an amazing thread artist using her sewing machine to build up layers of multi-coloured thread ‘drawing’ with needle and thread to convey the image. Depicting the Canadian landscape, the precious eco-systems and wildlife with eco-fibre art, she hopes the viewer will take away an appreciation and connection to the beautiful, fragile aspects in nature.
