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.
Her art works are made of hand dyed, hand painted and commercial fabrics; free motion stitching and embellishments and mounted on an artist canvas.
