Fleetwood Library is proud to be displaying fibre art by Thelma Newbury for January and February 2019.
Thelma Newbury is a Vancouver born artist working in fabric and fibres. She loves working with vibrant colours. She has always pursued creative crafts: sewing, knitting, crocheting, painting, metal sculptures, etc.
After a career in accounting she wanted her retirement years to be filled with beauty, creativity, and satisfaction. She took a one day course to make a quilted-stain glass looking angels for her grandchildren. From there she adapted her learning to satisfy her own need to explore with fabric.
This exhibition is called “African Sunsets” and was prepared for the 2020 Oneness Gogos calendar.
