I have just delivered work to The Customs House in South Shields. The exhibition is described below. My stitched drawings are my own designs but taken from years of looking at crewel work designs and old embroidery transfers. They incorporate pieces of the original transfers and my own drawing within the backgrounds.
Illustrative & Stitched Drawings
28 November 2015 – 10 January 2016
Featuring the work of illustrators and artists working with stitch, this exhibition explores the role of drawing in their practice - challenging traditional perceptions of ‘what is drawing’ and the ‘finished’ product within illustration and textiles. The exhibition includes work by regional, national and international artists, including: Ailish Henderson, Alice Pattullo, Alma Vescovi, Bethan Laker, Claudia Sacher, Esen Kaya, Gaynor Devaney, Helen Edling, Louise Edwards, Mandy Pattullo, Manuela Adreani, Melodie Stacey, Rieko Koga, Sharmistha Kar, Sue Stone, Tracey Long and Viv Sliwka.
