Hello, Viv here, a little about my practice.
My art comes from a lifelong and deep need to make, draw, stitch and paint.
I work spontaneously, reacting to the inspiration provoked from Folk Art, dogs, Hares, flowers and birds and my personally sourced vintage and antique fabrics, haberdashery and paper ephemera.
I start my creative process with drawings of ideas, which are translated into print, paint, free motion machine and hand embroidery. Combined with textured layering up of time worn fabrics, a little text and my signature embroidered flowers, my completed pieces tell tiny tales.
