Embroideries

 

‘Lovat Terrains’ 2020

‘Lovat Terrains’   When I go on my walks, the textures of the ground under my feet change from soft, mossy land to overgrown to marshy to tangled roots. This area of land has some forest, some gentle woods, arable fields, marshland and riverside. I walk through the familiar sections, visiting my favourite trees and plants; the Dogwood whose leaves yield the most beautiful lime greens, the Oak which is most preferred by the oak gall wasps, the swathes of butterbur, the wild geraniums and the various wonderful lichens. Walking, looking, listening and gathering leaves to use later in the printed panels. This work is broken into grids which tell the story of my steps along this old friend which I walk most days and whose subtle changes I watch throughout the year.

‘The Beauly Firth’ 2020

This piece is a view which I see most days along the side of the Beauly Firth. This landscape is an imprint on my memory never to be lost. The mapwork includes the spots alongside the firth where I gather my foliage. I have used it in some way as a pinboard with little imprints from the land placed on the landscape. The foliage is worked in to the land and the hills fossilized forever imprinted into my wool. I like the notion that those colours were made with the very landscape that it depicts.

‘Fern Forest’ 2020
img_0247-1
This is a Prayer Flag based on Tibetan Prayer Flags which was made to be part of a project conceived by LA artist and botanical printer Linda Illunimardi. Flags have been created by women from around the world to be exhibited at various locations. Peace, love and coming together from the four corners of the world is the message. Flags are currently being gathered so no visuals yet but the work as a whole will be exhibited soon.

This embroidery has been worked with fabric weather worn in the elements and pushed to the brink of erosion.
