Colour and Texture make textile art different from other art forms. I use dying and printing, stitching and felting and mixing paper, natural and synthetic fibres and materials to embellish my work. All are important.
Created from fabric scraps, silk fibres and wool tops machine stitched together on dis-solvable membrane, then embellished with hand stitch and beads in appropriate colours.
This piece combines rust dyed silk chiffon and autumn coloured silk, metallic & cotton threads and beads with bark cloth elements.
Inspired by the coloured awnings of Norwich Market.
Layered sari silks and cotton stitching.
This technique and the materials contribute to the visual texture of this piece.
