Karkalla ©2017 Brenda Gael SmithSince making my first quilt, patchwork quilting and textiles have developed into a compelling avocation for me. (I was a commercial and regulatory lawyer in another life.) I relish every step in the artmaking process – the planning, the construction, the sharing AND the serendipity factor!

This website highlights a selection of my contemporary textile art.

Exhibitions, Teaching & Sharing

I teach throughout Australia and overseas (see my schedule) and my work can also be viewed in many exhibitions.

For regular updates, I invite you to sign up to the Serendipity Studio Newsletter.
