From South Australia in the Adelaide Hills Pam Holland is truly a renaissance woman: a wife, mother to an enormous family, quilter, quilt designer, pattern designer, fabric designer, photographer, illustrator, film maker, inveterate blogger, quilt judge, author. She is a traveling correspondent for the Quilt show ith Alex Anderson and Ricky Tims. She says that "Artists are inventors, shaping the new from the already established. Some of my ideas about quilts come to me through the whisperings of ancestors and unknown/unseen muses. Other inspiration comes from nature, my photography, my experiences in travel and the light in my expression as I see the world as a very special place"
You've seen her quilts in pictured magazines and in major quilt shows internationally. Her "American Gothic Revisited" based on the iconic 1930 painting by Grant wood won Best of show at the AQA Show in Paducah and other quilts have won Best of Show at International Quilt Festival in Houston.
Her books include The 1776 Quilt: Heartache, Heritage, and Happiness based on her applique reproduction of an 18th century quilt made by Sorbian soldiers on the battlefront and recently The Adventures of the Amazing Alphabet , a sketchbook of illuminated letters for children.
