Alicia Merrett

United Kingdom

I was born and brought up in Argentina, and came to live in England in 1967. I learnt to sew from my mother who was an accomplished stitcher, craftswoman and photographer.


The crystal blue sky and the bright colours of my childhood have stayed with me and have influenced my textile work over the years. My background in photography informs my way of seeing. The quality of stitched fabric, and the texture of quilting have drawn me to art quilting. 


After many years of working with improvisational piecing and collage, I have switched to creating digital collages using my own abstract designs and altered photographs. The final designs are printed on fabric, layered and stitched, becoming a different kind of colourful improvisational art quilts.


My work is exhibited world-wide, has won awards, and is in private and public collections.
