Textile Artist and Illustrator
Embroidery of St James' Church, Bishampton
Illustration, Mixed media, Painting, Textiles & Needlework

Local landscapes and architecture are the inspiration for my textile artwork. I use procion dyes and fabric paint to create the design; details are added with free-motion embroidery using a domestic sewing machine. I use several layers of thread to ‘draw’ the image, resulting in a raised, textured appearance. The intricate layering and blending of embroidery threads make the work appear illustrative, reminiscent of pen drawings. I choose which method to use based on the subject; architectural designs have more detailed embroidery, and landscapes are more painterly.

I am happy to demonstrate free-motion embroidery during the Open Studios event. For more information about my work, please visit www.michelleflint.com
