Textiles and mixed media

I love working with textiles. I use mainly recycled fabrics building up each piece with layers of collage and mixed media using stitch and mark making to add detail. I work mainly with hand stitching using a limited number of stitches (though I’ve been known to use the sewing machine it’s not usually my first choice). This last year I’ve been exploring the possibilities of cross stitch from neat to bold, even wild! Since lockdown last year I’ve found inspiration in the flowers in my garden and the more formal planting in Gheluvelt park, marking the seasonal changes on my walks along the canal and the river. I’ve enjoyed the burst of colour this has given to the work I produced in 2020, which has continued into this year too.

I’ll have a selection of recently completed wall hangings, smaller framed works and cards for sale as well as folios of my work available for browsing. Everything will be laid out in my garden and my newly constructed summer house. I’ll be happy to talk about and demonstrate my stitch and design techniques during the day.
