Sheila Walwyn

Thread Artist

Textile has been Sheila’s preferred medium of artistic expression since 1990, and she belongs to two fibre art groups which have provided a great deal of support and inspiration and exhibition opportunities. Sheila has been a member of Fibreworks since its inception in 1997, and of Fact (Fibre Artists Cape Town) since its beginnings in 2008. Colour and nature are probably her two most important stimuli and the creative process is usually a progression from her own photo to a sketch, to a paper collage and eventually to a fabric collage.
Sheila is an accredited judge for the South African Quilters’ Guild.
