Small Textile Landscapes

Since childhood I have been inspired by the changing moods of South Downs and fascinated by the diverse range of flora and fauna which thrive here, including rare birds, snakes and lizards, butterflies and grasshoppers, and many species of fragile native plants. To my delight, on the 12th of November 2009, Hilary Benn (then Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs) announced that the South Downs would receive National Park status and confirmed its boundary. The South Downs National Park officially came into being on the 31st of March 2010. My project, β€˜Textile Landscapes of The South Downs National Park’, is a celebration of this important event.

The construction methods used to create each artwork (i.e. the types of sewing and stitching techniques) are stitching (stab stitch, dab stitch, running stitch), wrapping (using a wire skeleton as a base to wrap cotton, wool and fabric), appliquΓ© (sewn layered fabric), fabric (linen, cotton, chiffon, georgette, satin, wool, calico). I never use glue or a sewing machine.
