About

Wendy has pursued her love of fabric and stitch in various ways throughout her life, achieving a BTEC (distinction) Machine Embroidery in 2010 and an FdA (Merit) Stitched Textiles in 2014. She mainly works in a highly representational, controlled and detailed style, but occasionally takes a more conceptual approach as was demonstrated by her ‘Red Knot Migration’ installation exhibited at the Mall Galleries, London 2015.

Whilst she has been influenced by a number of artists from differing practices, including printers and artists as well as many textile artists, Wendy’s inspiration more often than not occurs by chance; it could be a word, a story, a colour, or a photograph that captures her imagination, prompting a range of diverse and sometimes unusual work. The Natural world and environmental issues are also having a bearing on her more recent work.

Much of Wendy’s work is composed entirely of free machine embroidery but some pieces employ appliqué techniques combined with both machine and hand stitching.

    Lovely to see what you’ve been doing in the year or more since I last saw your work. It’s certainly changed and developed and I can see you’ve been creating some very interesting and beautiful original work. Good luck with your degree show. Looking forward to seeing the final Red Birds.

    Thank you Jane for your lovely comments, it’s all a bit manic at the moment but hopefully it will all come together for the show.
