PAINTING BY STITCH, Contemporary Embroidery and Painting
"A painter by training, her composition is unplanned, giving the final product a mismatched, natural feel. She calls it 'painting by stitch'. I keep a daily sketch book but when it comes to painting the curtains, I put the sketch book away and let the work become intuitive. Her new collection of curtains is all hand-embroidered in a range of coloured silks on natural raw linen. Part of their appeal is the amount of time that has gone into each curtain, hand embroidering can take a long time". The Telegraph, A Stitch In Modern Time
