The article features Audrey Walker, a textile artist. According to the author, Walker is direct, confident, warm and funny, opinionated and articulate. She appreciates the paradox that her environment does not influence her subject matter. She is more into textile than landscape painting. The switch from painting to textiles came while she was teaching in London where she spotted some fabric pictures in a gallery.
