I am a Devon based self taught textile artist specialising in free motion machine embroidery. I create contemporary botanical art, landscapes and seascapes, all inspired by the natural world around me.
I have chosen not to use fabric dyes or paints in my work so prefer to use up-cycled textiles where possible for their variety and individuality.
I am a member of The Embroiderers Guild, The Society For Embroidered Work and the Devon Artist Network
I really enjoyed this informative day course run by the inspirational Alison Whateley. She was very generous in her encouragement and where to source the necessary materials, all given in a very relaxed atmosphere.
A fantastic course, very well run and with loads of instruction and tips. I really enjoyed the day and came away with a beautiful picture. Great value too.
A really informative course for all levels. Alison shared lots of tips and, because of the small number of participants, gave lots of individual tuition. Looking forward to the next course in September.
What an exciting day, with lots of fabrics to choose from & lots of ideas to inspire.
Alison is a truly amazing artist & teacher. She also had a vast collection of her hand made cards available, which help with ideas for your own work.
Thank you, Alison.
