Angela Dewar MSDC
Stitched & Constructed Textiles
The Arts have been an important part of Angela's life from childhood. Her early career was in theatre. Today, her love of classical music, poetry and landscape are key influences in her work. Painters such as John Piper and the Neo Romantics are among her favourite artists. She is also constantly inspired by her travel experiences, especially in Italy.
Having specialised for many years as a machine embroiderer, she is now enjoying a return to hand stitching on her own handmade felt. Mystery and Symbolism are key concepts that run throughout her work.
