I am a contemporary art quilter, working mainly with the techniques of freehand-cutting and piecing, and fused collage. My inspiration is varied: the natural and urban environments, literature, music, ideas. My passion is colour and I use it in my own personal way. My current series is on maps and aerial views.
I am a teacher and a speaker. My work can be seen in my website, http://www.aliciamerrett.co.uk, and I can be contacted on: . The workshops I teach are listed there; new ones are added from time to time. My lectures are digital presentations, and I bring my own digital projector and iPad.
I will be having an exhibition gallery, Mapping the Imagination, at the Festival of Quilts 2014, and I will also be teaching both in the Academy and the Quick & Easy sessions.
