This is a rectangular textile woodland landscape picture. In the foreground the textured leaves and flowers of the bleeding heart plant stand out from the actual surface of the picture. They are created using free machine embroider in yellow, green, pink and white threads. The background contains a range of greens, blues, yellows, pinks and white felt, wool and recycled Sari silks all machine felted together. On the right hand side of the image in the middle ground you can see a variety of beads and sequins.
Following a long teaching career, I am now a Textile Artist making a range of mixed media 2D and 3D works. My inspiration comes from local landscapes, flowers and the human form. I use a range of textile and art techniques within my work and enjoy experimenting with a range of free machine embroidery techniques.
