Canadian Craft Federation
I am pleased by J Penney Burton's interpretation of my work in her article for the Canadian Crafts Federation. She says: "The wall quilts of Judy Martin demonstrate many surface design techniques. In Moisture and Greenness, she combines many quilting patterns to form a cohesive yet non-traditional whole. This work could be seen as an environmental call to arms, referencing windmills, alternative sources of power, extreme weather, and the potential water crisis. These elements exude the peace and fragility of the earth, all shown under cover of the night sky." You can read her entire article about Canadian Textile artists or a wider variety of articles on the 2007 year of craft on the CCF website.
