American artist Carolyn Halliday creates tactile three dimensional pieces. Often using reclaimed items, her colour palette both compliments and elevates the natural beauty of found objects.
British tapestry artist Jilly Edwards paints with wool. Her subject matter is what she senses from her surrounding reality which she weaves into abstract canvases. The results are a celebration of colour and tone which have a timelessness and show why she is enjoying such a long and illustrious career.
Australian artist Louise Saxton ‘reinvigorates and restores value,’ to found and reclaimed textiles, paper and ceramics. The last decade has seen her concentrating on discarded needlework, which she assembles onto nylon tulle using lace pins, to become works of art that are often based on historical paintings.
