Internationally recognised textile artist and Ozquilt Network ember Ruth de Vos is based in Perth WA and is well known for her botanical art quilts.
“Ruth creates exquisite pieces of textile art. The results are amazing; either sitting back admiring their beauty or marveling in the intricacy of their minute detail. These vibrant quilts incorporate traditional patchwork and quilting techniques manipulated in a contemporary way to record the experiences [Ruth] has with nature and the world in which we live.”
