Sue Nicholls – Meet the Artist

A little textile inspiration from my YouTube Textile Collection. Today it features the beautiful English countryside, captured in stitch, by artist Sue Nicholls.

Sue lives in rural Hertfordshire and uses her sketchbook to document her local landscape. Each image is a source for her stunning machine and hand embroidered art works. For instance, her depictions of snowy furrows and hedgerows, recreated in wool felt and thread. 

Similarly, the large tree scapes were created from drawings of Gunby Hall and Gardens estate, a National Trust property.
