About Jane V Shorten Textile Art

Jane V Shorten Textile Art

I make textile pictures using embroidery, appliique and transfer images

I like to use a vintage black lined image as the starting point for my work. Using appliqué and embroidery stitches I then place that very literal image in an environment that is slightly fantastical or abstract but usually based in nature. I am inspired by colour and get most pleasure from choosing fabrics, thread colours and stitches and placing them around the transfer. For inspiration I like to look at the work of printmakers and still life photographers, it is always the colour combinations and marks that draw me in.
