Okay, so we may have cheated slightly here – her work could be seen as “cute”, however it is the message behind her recent offerings which we really like……….
A rather healthy looking bird!
This artist uses her work to explore meaningful issues, such as climate change and what we as humans are doing to care for / destroy natural habitats. We spotted another of her pieces at this years The Knitting and Stitching Show within the The Vlieseline Fine Art Textiles Award. Check out her own website for more information!
As a freelance artist, designer, lecturer and tutor (how do I narrow down that description?!) I have been contracted by numerous arts organizations to provide Talks, Workshops’ and Masterclasses’ in Textiles, Print Making and Fine Art subjects. These include branches of the Embroiderers’ Guild, Textile Study Groups and The Women’s Institute. Every year I teach at The Knitting and Stitching shows and exhibit with the Artist in Action stand. Currently I am building up to my exhibition at The Spring Knitting and Stitching Show at Olympia, London this spring; having also written articles or had work illustrated in Stitch, Inspired, Embroidery, Selvedge, Daphne’s Diary, Prima (online), Cloth Paper Scissors and the Batsford book ‘Be Creative with Textile Art.'
