Working with Textiles. Textile Collage & Drawing.

Tuesday, April 11th, 2017

I am a visual artist who works with a range of mediums and my process varies.

 

 

I use which ever vehicle helps me to express my ideas. Each work informs the other and leads onto the next idea.

 

 

The collages I’m working on at the moment are a follow on from my hand sewn fabric pieces and with more experiments I can see 3d objects creeping in

 

 

 

 

Sun Prints. Coffee. Vintage Textiles.

Saturday, August 23rd, 2014

Experimenting today with sun prints using coffee and the sun

Vintage damaged cloth stretched over wooden frames with French flourish stamping

 

Tattered antique French doilies placed on top of stretched cloth

 

 

Using the doilies as a stencils spray with coffee and vinegar diluted in hot water and leave under the sun for an hour or so

 

 

Resulting in subtle ghostly images embedded for further embellishment later

 

Iron each image 3 mins. to make colour fast
