new work

portrait brooch

portrait brooch - embroidery

Last week I offered my first selection of portrait embroidery pieces - and am happy to be continuing on with offering a modest choice of stitches most weeks..... Stitched using my sewing machine as a drawing tool, these intricate and miniature works fascinate me as they come to life. They are worked in an improvised way, meaning I am never sure who I may meet as the stitches appear....

Meanwhile, paintings.... I'm exploring both still life and abstract ideas, and there's of course a lot of cross-pollination. Certainly my fascination for botanical shapes will always be in my work somewhere, in stitch motif or abstracted shape in paint....

These works - and others - will be in my shop tomorrow (2pm UK time).

That brooch is stunning! And your method sounds wonderful:) I always like when a creative project kind of seems to have a mind of its own as you work on it.
