Embroidery

 

Hand-embroidered miniature tapestries

The miniature tapestries are crafted from digitally woven jacquards, hand-woven wools and selected silks before embroidery. Handmade in London, each embroidery is unique. 

Employing the protective nature of textiles, the series is a meditative exploration of intimacy, vulnerability and space. Feminine iconography interweaves with organic symbolism to invite a look inwards.

Using a selection of silk and metallic threads, there is a visceral tactility to the series. Freshwater pearls, mirror and beading adorn select pieces. 

The embroidered works have been exhibited at Flowers Gallery, TJ Boulting and London Art Fair. Please see individual artworks below for details.
