Textile Quilt

BIO

I specialise Textile Art but I have always been interested in all aspects of Art and Design and I’m continuously learning new techniques. So far I have enjoyed working in materials such as cotton, wool, wood and glass. For my final major project I have been exploring CAD and embroidery to create a contemporary quilt based on a still life drawing of vegetables. I use hand and machine embroidery as way to interpret the natural textures from my sketches onto fabric. I contradict the use of natural to textures by designing my quilt with the use of CAD to generate a new and modern way of producing quilts and pushing the boundaries of tradition. This body of work allows the audience to see nature artificially transformed in Textile Art.
