She made her first ever quilt at the tender age of eleven, which was made from the skirts, dresses and shirts of herself and her three sisters.

Collette’s work is largely influenced by her love of gardening, the natural flora of the Irish countryside and the cacophony of wild flowers which augment its landscape. These pieces are further enhanced by the use of beads,jewellery, intricate needlework and embellishments.

Having received numerous commissions to date, her work ranges from traditional patchwork quilts to bespoke wall hangings.

In November, 2009 she successfully held her first solo exhibition at Teach Ban Nua, Artists Gallery, Drumcliffe, Sligo.  If you are interested in contacting Collette please do not hesitate to do so on 086 2022 061.
