This piece of textile art is created on a foundation of fabric pieces and mixed media which is embellished with fabrics and fibres that are embroidered using free machine and hand embroidery.
A framed piece of textile art that is perfect for a gift for any occasion.
The background fabric is built up using a range of fabric pieces including antique lace, silk, cotton, linen, scrim and handmade paper. The small fabric pieces are secured together using a doodle style free machine embroidery stitch.
The flowers are appliqued onto the fragmented fabric background with free machine embroidery and further embellished with hand embroidery using hand dyed threads.
The embroidered piece measures approximately 9 x 9cm (3.5 x 3.5”). This is presented in a white box frame measuring 25.5 x 25.5cm (10 x 10”) with a white mount, aperture 13x13cm (5x5”).
My inspiration primarily originates in Northumberland and Cumbria where I explore nature. I photograph the colours, patterns and textures, these are used to inform my textiles. The exploration of colour and texture is further developed through dyeing fabrics, threads and textured yarns, I combine colours using variegated dyeing techniques. French knots are my favourite way of adding texture within hand embroidery and are incorporated into many pieces of my work.
Fabric scraps and mixed media create the foundations for my embroidery; hand dyed fabrics are used to create the textures and hand dyed threads are embroidered into my work to add definition using both machine and hand embroidery.
The heart of my work is created from very small pieces that are joined together to create a rugged background texture, this represents how our lives are crammed with many things that we should bring together to enhance the quality of life
