an original embroidery artwork
I am pleased to be offering here my newest intricate embroidery work...
Using my sewing machine as a drawing tool, I have created this striking scene - a central female figure dressed in gold and warm cream, with attending smaller figures and dreaming faces. There is much attention to detail in this work with many dancing stitches.
I wished to create a scene of plenty, with the archetypal mother and child at centre. There's a feeling of tradition in the gold with warm cream thread. But I've also made my own 'mark' with pattern and motifs.
My embroidery artworks are inspired by my love of art history, the many faces seen in art through the ages. I am especially interested in medieval art and onward, but I like to create and share with you my own dreaming worlds. I have over the past several years developed my own distinctive stitching style.
