Embellishing the Surface is my way of creating textures that are interesting and change the way You as the viewer look at fabric.
I use fabric and threads as my medium instead of paper and paintâ€¦ my sewing machine instead of a paint brush to thread paint onto my designs.
My approach is to chop and mix the fabrics and add textures to create beautiful new surfaces. Stitching into the surface gives me a changing palette and adding colours brings the artwork to life.
I am driven by colour and strive to find that special combination that has the WOW! Factor.
I travel to teach my techniques of fabric embellishments and textured surface workshops and love this journey that I am on to inspire and encourage everyone to experience the creative side of Textile Art. www.textileartworkshopsonline.com
