I am a textile artist from the East Riding of Yorkshire, UK. I specialise in creating textile work that combines elements of painting and stitching into 2D and 3D pieces.
My current ongoing collection is inspired by British wildlife, portrayed through paint and stitch and created in both flat and sculptural form. Each sculptural piece is created using a combination of painting, embroidery and assembly. I also produce commission pieces of pets, past and present, as well as favourite animals and specific animal requests.
My work was recently exhibited at both Pocklington Arts Centre and the Ferens Gallery Open Exhibitions.
Animal Head Textile Sculptures
I accept commission work for textile animal heads. I work from photos to create a beautiful textile sculpture of your pet or animal's head. My sculptures are made using an armature, sculpted to match the animal's bone and head structure, then each section is covered with embroidered and painted pieces to create a finished life-size 3D textile animal head. Each piece is made with a ring so it can be safely hung from a wall. Production times vary, depending on the animal and availability. Prices start at £200. Deposit required.
