I listen to my mood and work with it allowing the design to evolve spontaneously until I am satisfied with the result

~Hilde Van de Walle Morin

Hilde Morin, a fiber artist, looks for drama in the creation of art quilts. Drama in the form of color, texture and pattern. She finds her inspiration in both, natural and in architectural scenes, having a particular interest in cities, towns, buildings and weathered structures. In her natural scenes she represents reality by simplifying or suggesting it through either abstract or primitive designs. Her technique includes the creation of a first layer of improvised pieced fabric with the addition of a second layer of texture thru extensive thread work and surface design. Her creations are influenced by her multi-cultural background and travels.

Hilde was born in Caracas, Venezuela. Of Belgian descent, currently resides in Portland, Oregon, USA. She exhibits at local and international venues including SOFA (Sculptured Objects and Functional Art) Chicago and New York, Museum of the Americas-Florida, Galería Exágono-México, CIART (Centro Integral de Arte Textil) in Argentina, Museum of Contemporary Craft in Portland-Oregon and Oregon Historical Society Museum in Portland, Oregon.

She teaches regularly at her studio and at other venues, promoting the use of free form techniques in the construction of art quilts.
