I love the work of the North West Coast Indigenous artists. I, sadly, am not one of them. However I have a strong Celtic heritage, and It seems interesting to me that so many of the parameters that define North West Coast Art, are so like to those which occur in the art work of the Celts. There is a strong basis in storytelling and mythology, the animals and people may not be realistically represented, and both being Northern people, they have many animals and plants in common. This quilt is an attempt to demonstrate these apparent similarities.
