Embellishing the Surface is my way of creating textures that are interesting and change the way You as the viewer look at fabric.
Stitching into the surface gives me a changing palette and adding colours brings the artwork to life.
In my art practise my approach is to chop the fabrics into small confetti styled pieces, and then mix the colours and textures to create beautiful new fabrics. I use raw edge applique and thread painting to enhance these surfaces.
I travel to teach my techniques of fabric embellishments and textured surface workshops and love to inspire and encourage everyone to experience the creative side of Textile Art.
