Thelma Newbury is a Vancouver born artist working in fabric and fibers.  She loves working with vibrant colours.  She has always pursued creative crafts:  sewing, knitting, crocheting, painting, metal sculptures, etc.

After a career in accounting she wanted her retirement years to be filled with beauty, creativity, and satisfaction.  She took a one day course to make a quilted-stain glass looking angels for her grandchildren.  From there she adapted her learning to satisfy her own need to explore with fabric.
