“Travel has been a central feature of my work and this book is by extension a continuation of the themes explored in my previous books ‘Textile Nature’ and ‘Textile Folk Art’. I have always admired my adopted country’s predilection for travel and exploration. In my solo and collaborative project work, travel has shaped and directed the themes, materials and outcomes of my textiles. At the same time, it has helped me to question and research the landscape, culture and traditions of the places I have visited and my surroundings closer to home.
As artists, travelling helps us to locate our place in the world and share our practices with new audiences.”-Anne Kelly
