Artist Information

Dorothy Bennett

A trip to the Maritimes first brought Dorothy to Pugwash and she’s now settled in beautiful Forest Glen. After 20 years in publishing, retirement has given her the freedom to fulfill a passion for intriguing art projects.

Dorothy’s contemporary barn quilts are inspired by the geometry and vibrant colours used by traditional fabric quilters.

“Everyone finds a way to express themselves. Mine is creating outdoor art pieces by ‘quilting with paint’.”
