Meet the Artist – Anne Kelly

A little textile inspiration from my YouTube Textile Collection. Today it features the Textile Folk Art of Anne Kelly.

Anne, collects preloved cloth, recycled paper & ephemera. She then uses collage, stitch, photographic and print processes to create her unique form of mixed media Folk Art. Her heavily embroidered and textural works have been described as ‘small worlds’, with a small scrap or remnant of fabric that can inspire a whole piece – each taking inspiration from travel and memory.

Anne is a member of The Embroiderers’ Guild – UK and a member of The Society for Embroidered Work.

You can pre-order Anne’s new book ‘Textile Travels’ on Amazon.

Meet the Artist – Marian Jazmik

A little textile inspiration from my YouTube Textile Collection. Today it features the embroidered art of Marian Jazmik.

Marian’s work is very experimental and all her materials are sourced from discarded, reusable waste.

She stitches layer upon layer of heat treated synthetic fabrics to make some amazing textures – then embellishes these surfaces with found objects and embroidery.

Marian explains her creative processes in the video below.

Meet the Artist – India Flint

A little textile inspiration from my YouTube Textile Collection. Today it features the Eco-printed, Sustainable Textile Art of India Flint.

This beautiful leaf printed art started life as discarded cotton cloth, pre-loved garments and old mildewed blankets.  Each piece has been patched, darned, cut up and re-stitched. 

Filmed at The Festival of Quilts 2019.
