Jane Arthur — Textile artist

I am drawn to edges and borders, water, stones, lichen and ice, using pattern and texture to explore a particular time and place.  I’m fascinated by how a simple line of stitches can create meaning.  I like to use layers, bringing together fabric, paint and stitch, reusing, reclaiming and mark making. 

Trips to Antarctica in 2002 and 2020 continue to be a major creative influence in my work, the limited colour palette, patterns in water, land and ice, not to mention the penguins! 

I am also interested in the transference of memory through fabric, reusing and recycling textiles inherited from family, donated by friends, passed on or a chance find that resonates with what I’m working on.
