Hilde comes from an artistic family. Before dedicating herself to quilting in 2002, Hilde’s artistic endeavours extended to music, painting, floral art and jewellery design. All her previous experience came together when she began working with textile, minerals and paint. She uses a bright range of colours and a large diversity of materials and techniques.

Her work has been seen at many national and international exhibitions and competitions, where she has won several awards.

Hilde is the founder of Art Quilt Fusion, a European group of art quilters.

In 2013 she completed the Quilt Judging Course, organized by The Quilters’ Guild of the British Isles.

Pauline Burbidge has long been recognized as one of the United Kingdom's premier textile artists, and she also is one of the few European artists who have been an important force in the American art quilt movement.

Over her forty-year career, Pauline's work has been exhibited worldwide and examples have been purchased by a number of major museums of the UK, including the Victoria & Albert Museum, the National Museums of Scotland, the Ulster Folk & Transport Museum in Belfast, the Whitworth Art Gallery, in Manchester, the Shipley Art Gallery, and the Glasgow Museums. She is also represented in major collections in the USA, including the International Quilt Study Center & Museum in Lincoln, Nebraska, and the John M. Walsh III Collection of Contemporary Art Quilts, and has won numerous commissions, grants and awards, including the British Craft Council's John Ruskin Craft Award and a major grant from the Scottish Arts Council.

Pauline herself describes how she turned to quilting - "Take one person, who at the age of twenty five, was moved when viewing an exhibition of antique quilts, and mix it with her art school practice of drawing, colour, line and abstraction. Stir in a passion for cloth, stitching and making, together with a love of the rural landscape, the natural world and the spirituality of a special place, and you begin to get a picture of my textile artwork now. Many influences have come and gone, however, years on, quiltmaking still moves me!!"

I make unique, special, ‘one-off’ individual quilts – creating my own visual language in fabric.
