About Dorothy Russell, Coed y Berclas Holiday properties’ proprietor
Dorothy Russell says…
A steady breeze, a gentle sea, sunshine and a quilt’ what more could a girl ask for?… The tactile and visual qualities of fabrics and yarns combined with the textural surfaces developed through piecing, layering, manipulating, painting and embellishing… are intoxicating
I am Dorothy and I am a Quilt Artist, Teacher and Holiday accommodation proprietor living on Anglesey, North Wales. Textiles have been the love of my life since I was a child. I accept commissions, exhibits and gives talks on my Quilting to Quilt groups. I also teach Patchwork and Quilting to student Quilt Artists in North Wales, Cheshire and the North West of England… and I’m ace at running Coed y Berclas Holiday properties as well!
My work can veer from traditional to contemporary in an apparently irrational manner, but always at its heart is a fascination with the materials themselves. Silk particularly attracts me with its lustrous quality and glowing acceptance of paints and dyes. I cannot imagine working in any other medium – there is so much yet to achieve.
I am a blend of wife, mother, quilter, interior designer, lecturer, dancer, cottage proprietor, sailor, builder…….. standard woman”.
