I have been quilting since early 2000’s, starting as a traditional quilter, it just wasn’t for me. So I embarked on a wonderful journey of discovery and did my first landscape wall art quilt in 2011 which was accepted into AQC as a finalist! I was thrilled and knew this was what I wanted to do.

Since then I have made many more art quilts and my journey continues, I never stop learning. After joining Ozquilt Network in 2015 my style changed again with the wonderful influences of this group. Since 2015, I have exhibited my textile art pieces across Australia, including the beautiful Uluru, and overseas in USA, New Zealand and Switzerland.

Rebecca Wolske - Renovator's DelightAt present I am on a journey of Old things, attracted to Rust, rotting, disintegrating objects. My Renovator’s Delight art is one of these pieces with many techniques used to create that old run down look.
