Ria Shanon

With a lifelong interest in beautiful handwork, threads and fabric, my first quilt was completed when I was 16.  Primarily self-taught, I have been sewing art quilts and showing them in various exhibitions since 1985.  My work is far from traditional and is included in many private collections. 

Below, please find a listing of the various art shows and exhibitions my work have been chosen to display in. 

I invite you to contact me and hope to share my quilting passion with you!
