Karen Nicol at The Marylebone Hotel

Was in London yesterday and popped in to the Marylebone Hotel  to see an exhibition of the work of Karen Nicol. Those in the fashion/ textile world will have heard of Karen who for years has embroidered away for some of the top fashion designers. In this show of her own work she has recycled vintage garments into large scale animal portraits that are heavily stitched and manipulated  and need to be seen to be believed. The photographs I have taken are not wonderful but you can see better ones by clicking on this LINK which takes you to Karen Nicol's gallery.
The hotel is not far from Harley Street and Wimpole Street, nearest tubes Baker Street or Bond Street. Lovely staff in the hotel who were very enthusiastic about the art work and made us a good cup of tea.
