Textile Art Explorations
Well things have taken a surprising new direction with my creative pursuits. I have just signed up for some embroidery classes!! I did not see that one coming!
I can't even remember when or why I signed up to receive newsletters and emails from the Textile Artist website, but I have always enjoyed seeing all of the creativity of the textile artists they feature. I have also enjoyed collecting images of contemporary textile artists on Pinterest, here and here.
Through this website I discovered the beautiful artwork of Sue Stone, and suddenly realised that what she was doing was basically creating illustrations using textile mediums. After watching a series of videos about her technique and approach to her artwork, and I found myself thinking about it day and night. There was a growing curiosity inside me yearning to explore how this medium could influence my own work and creativity.
So, I jumped in and signed up! I am a complete novice, but am already loving the support and interaction of the others in the group. Stay tuned for more explorations and sample stitching!
