“Whether I’m painting, drawing or using textiles, moving head first into the unknown fuels my creativity”.  Sheila Frampton-Cooper, so presents herself in her Blog. Know her better HERE

Sheila, in her column, will write about events, techniques, artists and everything that draws her attention, from her point of view.


I was born in 1943. I live in Rome since I was eight years old. I worked at RAI from 1964 to 1999. Many passions have filled my life: from literature to quilting. From retired alive to Garbatella.

As I have done in recent years, contributing to the School with the weekly meetings of the “quilt bla-bla”, telling stories and proposing the ancient and the modern together with current events, I will continue on this path by collaborating with Arte Morbida magazine.
My gallery of stories, characters, articles on this world and everything connected to it will be enriched and I hope you continue to like it.

When culture influences and strongly characterizes an artistic sector, new styles are born which, although belonging to the macro category of textile art, quilting and fiber art, are partially separated, presenting peculiar characteristics. Here, we will talk about how some cultures have strongly influenced certain areas of textile art giving life to new stylistic forms.
