Sheena Norquay

Sheena was born on the Orkney Islands and has a degree from Aberdeen in two dimensional design in textiles and since then she has been interested in exploring the artistic potential of threads and fabrics although she had been sewing since childhood.

Her work has been exhibited internationally since 1981 and she has won many awards in competitive quilt shows.

Sheena is inspired by many things. Some of her work is pictorial and is inspired mainly by Orkney seascapes, birds and Norse myths.

She is also interested in using quilted lines to create graceful movement, sculptural shapes and decorative patterns. Inspiration comes from relief sculpture, circles, patterns in nature, man made patterns and decoration on other textiles. Most of the lines are free machine quilted, a technique which is her specialty.
