Donna Cheshire Textile Art

I work with hand dyed fabrics and free motion embroidery in response to landscape. I walk in and record landscapes that attract me, using my sketchbooks to make notes and drawings. I use these resources to create abstracted textile landscapes. I want to capture the sense of being in these beautiful places. The natural landscape is so important to me, I live in the city but each week I walk through green or coastal environments, taking time to appreciate the colours, textures and sounds and to note how I feel being in this place. Recording these walks in textiles is my way of treasuring the landscape

I studied textile design to Masters level and as a qualified teacher worked for many years teaching Art & Design to post 16 students. I now offer talks, workshops and demonstrations to groups and individuals.

My work is exhibited in galleries around Britain.

Walking and drawing to inspire my work

I’ve seen Donna’s work in real life and admire the way she seems to ‘paint’ with textiles in a unique way
