I am a contemporary art quilter, working mainly with the techniques of freehand-cutting and piecing, and fused collage. My inspiration is varied: the natural and urban environments, literature, music, ideas. My passion is colour and I use it in my own personal way. My current and best known series is on maps and aerial views. I exhibit world-wide.
I am a teacher and a speaker. My work can be seen in my website, http://www.aliciamerrett.co.uk and I can be contacted on: . The workshops I teach are listed there; new ones are added from time to time. My lectures are digital presentations, and I bring my own digital projector.
I teach regularly at the Festival of Quilts, both in the Academy and the Quick & Easy sessions, and in 2017 I had work in a number of different galleries at Festival, among them Fine Art Quilt Masters, SAQA Europe and Middle East, Through Our Hands, and A Matter of Time.
