Hilde van Schaardenburg - Textile Artist

Hilde van Schaardenburg-Kübler

Art has always been prominently present in her life, as a natural companion on her path. An endless stream of ideas is continuously seeking its way towards a material expression. Being a versatile, creative person, she worked with many sorts of materials until eventually focusing on textile, paint and minerals. Her work is always an expression of the joy of life, joy and inspiration that comes from the myriad forms and colours in nature.
Her work embraces the following areas: as a textile artist & quilter she exhibits widely in Europe, USA and Australia and has won several prizes; she is a coach for the awakening of artistic talents; and as a certified quilt judge she has been trained to evaluate objectively the works of others. Finally, she gives introductory courses in creative stitching and in jurying and judging.
