|Since making my first quilt, patchwork quilting and textiles have developed into a compelling avocation for me. (I was a commercial and regulatory lawyer in another life.) I relish every step in the artmaking process – the planning, the construction, the sharing AND the serendipity factor!|
This website highlights selection of my contemporary textile art.
Exhibitions, Teaching & Sharing
I teach throughout Australia and overseas (see my schedule) and my work can also be viewed in many exhibitions including Art Quilt Australia: People, Place & Nation that runs until 14 December 2013. In the Canberra Times, visual arts reviewer Kerry-Anne Cousins remarks:
“Brenda Gael Smith’s work Desert tracks: not terra nullius is an outstanding work. Smith uses subtly paired colour combinations of rich earth colours and repetitious zigzag shapes to suggest the gentle rhythm of walking across the land. I thought this made a political point subtly and with sophistication.”

I am curating another travelling textile art exhibition in 2014/2015. Read more at Living Colour! Entries close on 31 January 2014.
