Welcome to my blog entitled "Drawn to Stitch". I thought it was about time I started to share my creative journey with you all. Those of you who know me well will know that I've painted for many years now, starting with traditional materials and then moving onto mixed media. Now in the second year of my Contemporary Design Craft degree at the University of Hertfordshire I find my self undeniably "Drawn to Stitch" and textile art.
Recently at uni I've been exploring my creativity through textiles experimenting with both traditional and contemporary techniques and combining the two to arrive at some interesting outcomes. My felted vessels incorperated both neutral and bright felting fibres with autumn leaves. It's been interesting to observe the slowly changing colours and gradual decay of the leaves. The pieces continue to degrade and evolve.
