My Artwork

 

 

My use of embroidery has developed gradually over a period of years.  I aim to exploit the restrictions of free embroidery to create my unique one-off images. I use the economy of continuous line drawing and combine it with flat areas of patterned fabric to create a stylised image.

Ladies & Gentlemen

 

This work is inspired by my collection of 1940’s Stitchcraft magazines.  I particularly like the exaggerated poses of the models and also the advertisements which illustrate a variety of aspects of domestic life in this era.

Individual Themes

 

The subjects of my work are varied and tend to crystalize as ideas over a period of time. I remain interested in humour as a subject, which may be tinged with nostalgia or may be contemporary and drawn out of current events.
