Darren trained in Fashion Textiles, specialising in hand knit. His embroidery reflects his love of textiles and the visual qualities present in fabric and thread.

 

He uses a domestic sewing machine to appliqué and free embroider personal narratives or ideas, inspired by memorabilia or his collection of vintage ‘Stitchcraft’ magazines.

 

He aims to draw and paint with textiles, his mark making is achieved through sewing, contrasting surface qualities and embellishment.
