A little textile inspiration from my YouTube Textile Collection. Today it features moments in time, captured in stitch by artist Aran Illingworth.
Aran’s stunning portraits, document the lives of women and children. Images from India and beyond. Her large realistic artworks comprise of real garments and hand-stitch. Aran carefully sources up-cycled clothing, saris and shawls for each piece.
“Fractured Memories” depicting Dementia, was exhibited with The Society for Embroidered Work in 2019.
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.
