About

Very happy to be full time designing and making.

Hello, Viv here, a little about my work ...
My practice comes from a lifelong and deep need to make, draw, stitch and paint. I have worked specifically with vintage textiles, paper and haberdashery for 15 years, under the name of 'Hen's Teeth Art' by Viv Sliwka.
I work spontaneously, reacting to the inspiration provoked from folk art, dogs, hares, flowers and birds and my personally sourced fabrics etc., in my purpose built garden studio in Staffordshire, UK.
I start my creative process with drawings of ideas, which are translated into print, paint, free motion machine and hand embroidery. Combined with textured layering up of these time worn fabrics, a little text and my signature embroidered flowers, my completed pieces tell tiny tales.

    I have always been a passionate collector of vintage textiles, haberdashery and paper ephemera. My work is a celebration of the decorative union of these transient snippets from the past.
