Richly stitched machine embroidered textiles that explore qualities of colour, texture and light observed in land, sea, and sky.
Carol creates her award winning textiles by stitching directly onto painter’s canvas using a wide range of rayon, metallic, woollen and cotton threads. Intensive stitching changes the base fabric from a flat surface to one that moves rhythmically with its own unique quality allowing her to draw in a very direct way. The sewing machine needle provides the marks a pencil would make, and the richly coloured threads offer a sumptuous and exciting palette. Exhibitions of note include ArtExpo 2015, Milan, Art in Action, Designer Crafts at the Mall Galleries, London, The New Ashgate Gallery, and SOFA at Santa Fe and Chicago USA, and many other galleries across the UK. Her work is represented by Primavera Gallery, Cambridge.
