Writing on the Wall

The first stages of a new set of three pieces. In order to avoid distortion I’ve written the words on tissue paper, tacked that in place and then machine embroidered over the lettering with just one or two lines of stitch.  Then I’ve torn away the paper and re stitched with coloured threads. 

The three pieces will all feature text stitched in different ways, I’ll post more as they develop. The set are a commission for a specific building.

I am a professional textile artist specializing in Appliqué and Free Motion machine stitching. In order to create a unique colour palette, I hand dye my own fabrics and then use these to create the landscapes and coastal scenes recorded in my sketchbook. I often incorporate recycled or vintage fabrics in my work - they add meaning to the story the work is telling. I love being so close to the Northumbrian coast and countryside and I especially like taking time walk and draw these stunning landscapes
