The teacher

Gudrun Brueckner-Krebbel is 69 years old, married and has four adult children. She has worked as a teacher (of English and history) for 42 years. Twenty years ago she took her first "log cabin" course. So she started with traditional quilting. A few years later, Gudrun Brueckner-Krebbel met a Dutch artist (Ineke Berlyn) and learned a lot about landscapes in quilts. With the German artists Heide Stoll-Weber and Britta Ankenbauer she learned to dye her own fabric. She then participated in a master class in surface design with B. Ankenbauer and attended classes with Rachel Derstine (Philadelphia, Pennsylvania). Gudrun Brueckner-Krebbel enjoys creating land and seascapes and working with different techniques (e.g. silk painting, screen printing, photo transfer, layering technique) and mixed media. In the last three years she has organized three exhibitions: one in the south of France (Cucuron) and two in Germany (Hameln).

She is also a member of the German Patchwork Gilde and the Studio Art Quilt Associates (SAQA).
