'STORIES IN THREAD
In this body of work “Stories in Thread” I have endeavoured to characterise the layering of influences that strings us together through familiar scenes and stories.
While creating these textile art works I embodied my chosen images with threads, paints, dyes and found objects to enhance various texture qualities to my pieces. I apply both techniques of free motion machine and hand embroidery to add depth and enhance details.
I am originally from Connemara and now living in Sligo for many years I got my inspiration for this exhibition from what has surrounded me in landscapes, people, animals, poetry and folklore.
