Stitched & Constructed Textiles

About Anne
Anne creates hand embroidered textile pieces. By specialising in hand embroidery the fabric, thread and colour along with the stitching become important to the individuality of the work.
Biography Back to top

Inspiration comes from many areas of life but maps, words and lettering are a recurring theme. The finished pieces come either from the imagination, a phrase, saying or letter.

Lately flowers and the garden have also started to become an important influence on the work produced.

All work is hand embroidered as the artist finds this the best and most intimate way to create the final piece.
