Meet the Artist – Louise Mabbs

A little textile inspiration from my YouTube Textile Collection. Today it features the work of Louise Mabbs. Louise uses Mathematical principles to design and construct her bold geometric, colourful art quilts. In this video she explains the concepts and design theories behind these pieces.

Louise’s embroideries are inspired by her home near the sea – sunset walks along the coast, beach huts, wind mills and her love of the landscape. Filmed at The Festival of Quilts 2019.
