OdetteI am a textile artist and teacher living in Durban, a subtropical city with many cultures, on the east coast of South Africa.  My art quilts have often been influenced by the multi-layered African environment and by other personal experiences.

In my work the formal elements of design are always important.  I find the relationships and contrasts between shapes, lines, colours and textures, endlessly fascinating.

I am a Graphic Design graduate and I teach a variety of classes in design and contemporary quiltmaking at South African and international conferences, guilds and other groups.  My teaching approach is positive, encouraging and constructive as I guide students to develop individual work and to discover their own creative journeys.

My classes are structured to explore quiltmaking and art and design principles in practical, effective and enjoyable ways, with class projects being open to each student’s personal interpretation.
